Subject: CFP on Brecht & Film at MLA 2007

"Brecht and World Cinema": Considering cultural, political, and
technological shifts since 1989, the International Brecht Society seeks
papers reassessing the "Brechtian" in cinema and film studies. A focus
on historical or more contemporary issues might examine single films or
filmmakers, regional aspects or cinematic movements, or theoretical
questions. Aspects of Brecht's relevance to international cinema not yet
the subject of extensive research are particularly encouraged. This
session is dedicated to the memory of the important Brechtian director
Danièle Huillet, 1936-2006.

If you wish to present a 20-minute paper in this session, send a
one-page abstract and a brief CV outlining your relevant background by
23 March to Barton Byg, UMass Amherst, byg_at_german.umass.edu

Note: The MLA Conference will take place in Chicago from Dec. 27-30,
2007. To participate in the panel, you must be an MLA member by April 1,
2007, and pay the conference registration fee by Sept. 1, 2007. I urge
non-MLA members to contact me early about these logistical requirements.
