'Print Culture and the Novel: 1850-1900'

A One-Day Conference, English Faculty, University of Oxford

No longer was it possible for people to avoid reading matter; everywhere
they went it was displayed - weekly papers at a penny or twopence, complete
books, enticing in their bright picture covers, at a shilling, and all fresh
and crisp from the press. No wonder that the fifties, which saw the spread
of Smith's stalls to almost every principal railway line in the country,
were also the period when the sales of books and periodicals reached
unprecedented levels.

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

about documentary film ethics and ethnographic representation, as well

CFP: American Medieval: American Popular Culture in Medieval Film (9/15/06; Kalamazoo, 5/10/07-5/13/07)

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.
