From Tuesday, March 31 to Saturday, April 4, Regis was well represented at the Popular Culture Association / American Culture Association National Conference in New Orleans. I represented the graduate students with a presentation on "Myth and Religion in World War I." For the professors, Dr. Alison MacAdams presented her paper, "The Naked Truth: Sovereignty and Power in the Stories of Inanna and Little Red Riding Hood," while Dr. Kate Edney, who also served as area chair for Folklore and Popular Culture, organized and chaired 5 panels for the conference, and also presented her paper, "The Golden Dawn (1927), a Colonial Musical." The conference featured panels ranging in topics from comic books, to science fiction, to folklore, to feminism, to philosophy, to education, and a whole swath of other areas as well.
