The San Francisco State University 12th Annual International Film Conference

This conference seeks to explore the role of cinema in reflecting and contributing to concepts of historical events, identity politics, cultures, cults and celebrity.

Histories, as narratives of both personal and public events, identities and societies, are created, recreated, and deconstructed in film. This conference will explore how cinematic depictions of histories differ from that of other media and how cinema's depiction influences both society and other media. The relation between cinema and histories invites investigation from numerous perspectives, including but not limited to:

Monday, March 22, 2010 - 1:49pm
SAMLA Nov. 5-7, 2010 Atlanta/ submission deadline June 1

Whether they appear in literary works intended for adults or for children, and whether they are "real" or fictional, child characters are almost always the product of adult imaginings. What kinds of "cultural work" do child characters do in literary works? How is gender performed by these characters? How is national identity formed? This panel seeks papers which address these issues or others centered on the representation of children and childhood in American literary texts before 1900.

"And so I look upon the sort of regionalism that I am talking about not just as a recurrent literary phenomenon, but as a necessity of civilization and survival" (Wendell Berry "The Regional Motive")
