political activist has eclipsed consideration of him as a leading
documentary film director. We are seeking submissions which examine
Moore's relationship to various documentary styles or sub-genres, e.g.
cinema verite, compilation film, mockumentary, firstperson documentary,
essay film, etc. Submissions which focus on his ethical practice,

UPDATE: Why Melville Matters Now - A Trans-Disciplinary Symposium (7/15/06; 11/17/06-11/18/06)

updated: 
Monday, May 15, 2006 - 5:20pm
Mary Valentis

This celebratory symposium on Herman Melville to be
held November 17 and 18, 2006, at the Albany Academy
campus and its environs where Melville lived and
attended school from 1830-31, will consider the
enduring relevance of the author's life, work, and
influence from the perspectives of the humanities,
arts, the sciences, and new technologies. Herman
Melville's work lives on to "tell the tale," because
the questions he posed are the same issues that
inspire contemporary writers, artists, and thinkers
today-the vexed relations between humans and their
environment, racial and social injustices, capitol
punishment, psychological alienation, and the new
frontiers of science and globalism.
