Update: Call for Papers
Film and Science: Fictions, Documentaries, and Beyond
2008 Film & History Conference
October 30-November 2, 2008
Chicago, Illinois

Please note our new, third-round Deadline: August 1, 2008

How broad-reaching and inclusive is your conception of science? For Film
& History, it can span from animation to race, and from pedagogy to
virtual reality, with stops in between for extraterrestrials, explorers,
icons and mad scientists.

The following is a list of our current and shortly forthcoming areas for
Film & History's upcoming conference, "Film and Science: Fictions,
Documentaries and Beyond" (Chicago, 10/30-11/2/08). We are now entering
the 3rd Round Call for Papers, and the revised deadline for all areas is
August 1, 2008.

Featured speakers will include special-effects legend Stan Winston. Also
scheduled for plenary sessions are noted scholars Wheeler Winston Dixon
(author of Visions of the Apocalypse, Disaster and Memory, and Lost in
the Fifties: Recovering Phantom Hollywood) and Sidney Perkowitz (author
of Hollywood Science: Movies, Science, & the End of the World).
