Proposals are being reviewed for 20-minute presentations on film, ranging from critical essays to analyses employing recognized research methodologies.
Here are some examples that individual presentations could explore to demonstrate that a wide assortment of topic areas is sought:
> The black and white aesthetic: pre-1960s or post-1960s
> Ideological themes in contemporary films
> The film flashback: weak script device or important narrative tool?
> Subtext no more: special effects as the dominant message in contemporary films
> Horror film remakes
The 2011 SWTX PCA/ACA conference will be held jointly with the National PCA/ACA from April 20 - 23 in San Antonio, Texas.
