February 25-28, 2009

Individual presenters and panelists are invited to examine the popular
culture of film for the association's annual regional conference. This
conference will provide you with a wonderful opportunity to share
scholarly interests and to gain insights into film with other academics
and interested individuals.
We are looking for individual paper proposal submissions and/or panel
proposals for the genre of film. Topics might include, but are not
limited to, genre, auteur, audiences, racial, sexual and/or gender
identity. Panels will be formed by grouping together like-minded topics.
You could even e-mail me some titles of recent presentations.
Those interested in presenting a paper or participating on a panel at
this conference should send an abstract of approximately 100 words (or
more) to me, the area chair, no later than December 15, 2008. Attached to
your abstract you are asked to please submit a short "potential"
bibliography if possible and include a brief biographical sketch about
yourself. Submissions may require some refinement at the area chair's
discretion. Final decisions regarding the organization of our sessions
for this conference will be made shortly after the submission deadline. I
will keep you informed as things develop.
If you have colleagues or friends who might be interested in presenting
in this area at this conference, please forward them this e-mail.
Please send your abstracts and proposals to:
