Call for Papers: Film, Television and the 1960s Conference

We invite panel and individual-paper proposals for the Film, Television
and the 1960s Conference, to be held at Plymouth State University
(Plymouth, New Hampshire) October 5-6, 2007. The members of the
conference committee are seeking contributions that examine noteworthy
subject matter, representations, and themes explored in cinematic and
televisual offerings during the decade of the 1960s. Participants are
encouraged to interpret the conference theme broadly and innovatively.
Individual presentations will be limited to 20 minutes in length.

We encourage submissions from scholars, educators, and students at all
levels, and from disciplines including anthropology, communication,
cultural studies, film studies, history, journalism, LGBT studies,
media studies, popular culture, sociology, and television studies. We
intend to publish selected papers (with author's permission) in a
special anthology pertaining to the conference theme. As a bonus,
please note that the conference dates correspond with the ideal time to
enjoy New England's breathtaking fall foliage!

Persons submitting individual-paper proposals are asked to submit a
one-page abstract with complete contact information (name,
institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, daytime telephone
number, fax number). Panel proposals (featuring three
paper-presentations total) should include panel title, brief
description of panel theme, name of the panel chair, one-page abstracts
of each paper in the panel, and complete contact information for each
presenter on the panel (name, institutional affiliation, snail-mail and
e-mail addresses, daytime telephone number, fax number). In order to
be considered, all proposals must be received no later than July 15,
2007.
