Introduction to Movies: Which Films and Why

Midwest Modern Language Association Conference
Renaissance Hotel, Cleveland, OH.
November 8 - 11, 2007

This is a panel for film scholars to share their practical approaches to
teaching introduction to film; specifically, which films are the best teaching
tools and why?

Panelists should limit the number of films to three or four which illustrate
their classroom pedagogy for expanding students' concepts of film as literature
and not just entertainment. At best case scenario, the panel will be largely a
conversation between instructors interested in exchanging ideas about which
films are the best teaching tools, classroom exercises, and / or overall
pedagogical approaches to eras and genres. Papers are welcomed – but open-
ended, prepared conversational approaches to presentations are also encouraged.

Please send short abstracts (300-700 words) to by April
24th, 2007.
