David Denny Presents at International Conference

Dr. David Denny, culture & media department chair, presented a paper on Lars von Trier's Antichrist at the International Zizek Studies Conference in Cincinnati in April 2014.

Denny's presentation, A Postmodern Family Romance: Lars von Trier's Antichrist, dealt with the controversial 2009 Danish art film. After its premiere at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival, the film was praised for its artistic achievement, but critics were divided on the merits of the film's content.

The theme of the 2014 International Zizek Studies Conference was Parallax Future(s) in Art and Design, Ideology and Philosophy, examining aesthetic regimes, ideology and anti-philosophy in the postmodern world. One conference sponsor was the International Journal of Žižek Studies, a peer-reviewed, open access academic journal devoted to the work of Slavoj Žižek, a Slovenian philosopher/cultural theorist.

David Denny is chair of the Department of Culture & Media at Marylhurst University. His areas of expertise are critical theory, psychoanalysis, modern literature and philosophy, and film studies.
