Proposals are now being accepted for the Film & History Area. Join us this
year as a returning or first-time participant in the scenic Southwestern
city of Albuquerque! Our area is concerned with the impact of motion
pictures on our society and how films represent and interpret history.
Presentations can, for example, feature analyses of individual films and/or
TV programs from historical perspectives, surveys of documents related to
the production of films, or analyses of history and culture as explored
through film. Genres could include historical films attempting to define
history, propaganda films, documentaries, docudramas, newsreels and
broadcast media, war films, music videos and concert films, reality shows,
avant-garde, cinema verite, actualities, and direct cinema.

Listed below are some suggestions for possible presentations and/or panels,
but topics not included here are also welcome:
* Historical eras and coverage of historical events
* Popular culture
* Politics and government
* Gender
* Ethnicity, race, and class
* Sports and leisure
* Science and technology
* Religion and spirituality
* Pedagogy
* Film schools and theory

If you wish to form your own panel within the Film & History area, we would
be glad to facilitate your needs. Roundtable sessions and international
participation are also encouraged. We have already received papers on
various topics including, for example, the following subjects: Cold War
cinema, 1950s feature films, Powell and Pressburger, horror, the cinematic
city, documentary films. We will also hold an editor's panel which is
especially designed to give practical advice on how to publish to graduate
students and junior scholars. Participating journals include Film & History,
Literature/Film Quarterly, Journal of Popular Culture, Journal of American
Culture and Post Script.

Please send 100-200 word abstracts and proposals for panels via email by 15
