FINAL DEADLINE! September 15, 2010

Film & History has now entered its final CFP period! We invite those who have not already done so to submit proposals for individual papers, panels, and roundtables for our upcoming conference, "Representations of Love in Film and Television," to be held November 11-14, 2010, in Milwaukee, WI. Please see the list of active topic areas, below, and watch for topical calls for papers soon!

We are also delighted to welcome director and film theorist Dr. Laura Mulvey, as the conference's keynote speaker. Dr. Mulvey, professor of film and media studies at Birkbeck College, University of London, is widely known for her influential essay, "Visual Pleasure and Narrative Cinema" (1975), and is also the author of _Death 24x a Second: Stillness and the Moving Image_ (2006), and _Fetishism and Curiosity_ (1996), along with numerous articles. Her films, co-written and co-directed with Peter Wollen, are recognized for their complex explorations of identity, symbolism, and the female experience.

Please consult our website (www.uwosh.edu/filmandhistory), or email Director of Communications, Cynthia Miller, at cymiller@tiac.net, for additional information.
