Movie terror GODZILLA is set to be the subject of a three-day academic conference at America's University of Kansas in Lawrence.

The university will pay homage to the giant lizard later this month (OCT04) by organising the scholarly conference for the 50th anniversary of the first Godzilla film.

Planners hope to provoke discussion of globalisation, Japanese pop culture and Japanese-American relations after World War I.
