CALL FOR PAPERS

2006 Film and History League Conference: "The Documentary Tradition"

8-12 November, 2006

Dolce Conference Center

Dallas, TX

AREA: Robert J. Flaherty

Traditionally considered to be documentary cinema=92s defining text,

Robert J. Flaherty=92s Nanook of the North (1922) has both an iconic and

problematic status in contemporary studies of non-fiction film.

Flaherty himself has been a figure similarly revered and reviled in

equal measure for his genre-defying mixture of observational

documentation and romantic reconstruction. As a flashpoint for debates

Call for Paper Abstracts, proposal deadline: September 15

Session:
American Medieval: American Popular Culture in Medieval Film
42nd International Congress on Medieval Studies
Western Michigan University, Kalamazoo, MI
May 10-13, 2007

Depictions of the "medieval" in film often have very little to do with
medieval culture. Instead, the medieval period often becomes a
metaphor for issues, anxieties, and themes that are both modern and
culturally/nationally situated. This panel explores American
cinematic constructions of the "medieval" in an effort to discuss
medievalism in terms of American cultural studies.
