2006 Film & History Conference on

THE DOCUMENTARY TRADITION

8-12 November, 2006

Dolce Conference Center-Dallas, Texas

www.filmandhistory.org

AREA: Documentary vs. Feature Interpretations

DEADLINE: August 1, 2006

The objective of a documentary differs greatly from that of a feature
film intended

for a cinema audience. We are soliciting proposals that select
documentaries and

feature films that permit a scholarly assessment of the purposes of both
and of how

well they achieve their historical and/or mass audience objectives.
