>          Exploring the myriad and often conflicting meanings of "the city"
>as expressed in literature, film, photography, theater, creative reportage,
>history, and art history.  Inspired by Fritz Lang's film, we are calling
>for papers that examine relationships between the many written and
>pictorial forms that represent the city and its artistic, rhetorical, and
>symbolic meanings, in a given moment or as reflecting cultural and
>historical change and crisis.
>
>          From Lang's Weimar to Mina Loy's Paris, from the Harlem
>Renaissance to Leni Reifenstahl's Berlin, and from Martha Gellhorn's
>Barcelona to Elizabeth Bowen's Blitz and Marguerite Duras's "Hiroshima Mon
>Amour," and beyond, we will examine the construction and deconstruction of
>such terms as habitat, haven, ghetto, and muse as well as Metropolis as the
>center and periphery of civilization, as the inspiration for an idealized
>Rural, and even as anti-Metropolis.

>          The conference will be held at the Ohio State University,
