AREA: Nature and the Environment in Film and Television Documentaries

Early filmmakers often traveled the globe to introduce audiences to views of
far away places. Niagara Falls and scenes of the Holy Land shared the
screen with the dancing Carmencita and boxers Corbett and Fitzsimmons. Later, the
filmic exploration of the natural world added support to the argument that
movies were educational tools.

Call for Papers: Image, Sound, & Touch in the Nineteenth Century (Collection)

We are seeking submissions for a collection of previously unpublished
essays on Image, Sound, and Touch in the Nineteenth Century.

technologies of sound and touch? What can the nineteenth century teach us
about the inter-related and remedial qualities of media? In what ways do
we reproduce the apparent ocular-centrism of the nineteenth century in our
current critical practices?
