Organizer Name(s): Michael Baker

E-Mail Address: michael.baker2_at_mail.mcgill.ca

Summary: From the inter-titles of early cinema to the branded

central place in motion pictures. This panel will examine the use of
typography and printed text in film, including (but not limited to)
textual analyses of credit sequences. All proposals should have a

CALL FOR PAPERS
2006 Film and History League Conference
"The Documentary Tradition" Dallas 8-12 November 2006
<http://www.filmandhistory.org>

AREA: World War I

Early film historian Terry Ramsaye once wrote that World War I "contributed
nothing whatever to the art of the motion picture." This call for papers
asks whether Ramsaye's dismissal was warranted or whether, like much of
World War I filmmaking, the production of newsreels, documentaries,
propaganda films, etc. had a much wider impact on international film
production and exhibition than previously considered.

AREA: Silent Film

"Silent film" covers a vast terrain, from early cinema to the "transitional
period" (1908 - 1917) to the "late silent" era. During this formative time,
the term "documentary" was coined and a vast number of forms, from
actualities to city symphonies to travelogues and feature-length
documentaries, were a regular part of an evening's entertainment in
vaudeville and movie theaters and other venues.

AREA: Industrial/Corporate/Educational Film

Industrial/corporate/educational films, a category of non-fiction film, have
been a marginalized area of film study. Industrial/corporate/educational
films are viewed by thousands in schools, in corporations and in sales
meetings, yet the film companies, the filmmakers and the films themselves
receive little attention. This area seeks to explore the
industrial/corporate/educational film companies, the filmmakers and the
films.
