CALL FOR PAPERS
2006 Film and History League Conference
"The Documentary Tradition" Dallas 8-12 November 2006
<http://www.filmandhistory.org>

AREA: The Newsreel

Despite its integral role in shaping (inter)national debates, and its
presence in motion picture theaters for over half a century, the newsreel
has often received scant scholarly attention. But from its depictions of
war, politics, poverty, race, gender, and every other facet of life to its
presence in motion picture theaters and newsreel-only venues, the newsreel
was an indelible part of the motion picture experience.

38th Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 1-4, 2007
Baltimore, Maryland

Globalization is by many accounts the central crisis of our age. And in the
wake of postcolonial studies and the events of 9/11, literary studies has
made a definitive 'global turn.' But we have still only begun to examine the
myriad effects of globalization upon literary texts (broadly defined to
include prose fiction and non-fiction, drama, poetry, film, electronic
texts, and popular culture in all its forms).

CALL FOR PAPERS
2006 Film and History League Conference
"The Documentary Tradition" Dallas 8-12 November 2006
<http://www.filmandhistory.org>

AREA: World War I

Early film historian Terry Ramsaye once wrote that World War I "contributed
nothing whatever to the art of the motion picture." This call for papers
asks whether Ramsaye's dismissal was warranted or whether, like much of
World War I filmmaking, the production of newsreels, documentaries,
propaganda films, etc. had a much wider impact on international film
production and exhibition than previously considered.
