Call for Papers

2006 Film and History League Conference
"The Documentary Tradition"
www.filmandhistory.org

AREA: Errol Morris

Documentary filmmaker Errol Morris is known for winning the 2005 Academy
Award for Best Documentary for The Fog of War; for his 1998 film The Thin
Blue Line, which both resulted in the release of death-row inmate Randall
Adams and introduced the now-familiar dramatic reenactment; and for his
device known as the Interrotron, which allows direct eye contact
(ostensibly) between the subject and the spectator. He is a leading
contemporary practitioner in "the documentary tradition."

We are inviting submissions on all aspects of the non-fiction work of Errol
Morris, including his full-length documentaries, his television series First
Person, and his ads for the Move On/Kerry campaign.

Deadline for submission is July 21, 2006. Earlier electronic submissions
of
250-word abstracts are preferred.

The Film and History League conference details can be found at
www.filmandhistory.org. The meeting will run from 8-12 November, 2006, in
the Dolce Conference Center near the DFW airport. A spectrum of other areas
will evolve on the web site over time.
