Call for Papers

Special Issue of "Film & History: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Film
and TV Studies"

Film and Sport

 The interdisciplinary journal Film & History seeks submissions for a
special issue focused on discussions of sport in film and television.
The topic will be approached broadly, with submissions sought on
American and international sport featured in both documentaries and
feature films. Sport scholars who have been engaged in filmmaking or
worked with filmmakers are invited to share their insights. In
addition, papers discussing how sport in film may be incorporated into
the classroom are encouraged. Both film and sport offer insights into
culture and history, and in combining these topics this edition should
make for some exciting reading and scholarship.
 Film & History has been published since the establishment of the
Historians Film Committee by John E. O'Conner and Martin A. Jackson in
1970. This affiliated committee of the American Historical Association
encourages the use of film sources in teaching and research through the
publication of this journal and related scholarly activities. Peter
Rollins of Oklahoma State University has edited the journal since 1994.
(All authors must be subscribers at the time of acceptance for
publication—if they are not so previous to that time.) More information
on this semi-annual journal and its related activities can be found at
