This session will explore the intersection of film studies and history. We are looking for papers that explore filmic depictions of historical events, including motion pictures and television forms. Papers that foreground discussions of the accuracy, truthfulness, and ethics of filmic depiction, issues of historiography, and questions of the history of film-making itself are welcome. Since this year's conference theme also addresses sight, visuality, and ways of seeing, papers submitted that combine historical philosophies of film with the ontology of vision are also very welcome.

Session Title - Images of Crisis: Poetic Ways of Seeing Disasters

This session seeks papers on representations of "crisis" in literature, broadly defined. A non-exhaustive list of the questions raised by this panel may include: what happens when images of crises, disasters, or ruins are mediated through literature? How do images connect to understanding and knowledge? How does ekphrasis limit or enhance the possibilities of empathy? What are the obligations of our conscience as readers? What are the ethics of writing or reading about cruelties and atrocities? Areas of inquiry encompass, but are not limited to, the following:

Religions make normative claims and scholars have normative commitments. However, religious studies often conceives of itself as an empirical discipline, aligning itself with other disciplines that are ostensibly descriptive, like history, sociology, and anthropology. This tension has led to polarization within religious studies.
