Join us to talk about how Appalachia shows up on the big and small =
screens. Does popular culture give us the truth? Does it want the truth? =
Does Appalachia want to see the truth about itself? And so on.

Be willing to try out off-the-wall approaches. While it's fine to =
present on, say, Harlan County, USA or The Waltons, you might consider =
such topics as:

The Appalachian Aesthetics of Quentin Tarantino

Robert Mitchum: White Trash as Stagger Lee

and

Just Where Do the Beverly Hillbillies Come From Anyway?

Call For Contributions

Cinematic Responses to E.U. Expansion (collection)

This collection seeks to explore how various European films and filmmakers
from Western and East-Central Europe as well as the Balkan states are
responding to the expansion of the E.U. and, more broadly, European history
following the collapse of communism. The collection asks: Is there a
totalizing or even coherent image of Europe that emerges from such films?
Moreover, how do we understand such films in light of the fact that one of
the reasons cited for the Dutch and French rejection of the E.U.
constitution is resistance to further European expansion, in particular the
entry of Turkey into Europe?
