UPDATE: Submission deadline now 15 Nov. 2005
The Film & History Area of the PCA/ACA Annual Conference invites papers
for the coming conference to be held in Atlanta 12 - 15 April, 2006.


The Area covers a wide range of subject matter and disciplines within the area.

In the recent past, for example, we have had papers on films and the Second

World War, British propaganda shorts during the same conflict, Westerns

and their relationship to American history, early film pioneers in Florida, and

Hollywood's film adaptation of "Death of a Salesman". Also, we have had

excellent papers from panellists working in the gender studies area and in

European cinema (for instance, Roman Polanksi's "The Pianist").


If you are researching the histoery of films, or the relationship between film

and history in its broadest sense, we would love to hear from you. Our remit

also covers television, and ideas about this would be especially welcome.


Please submit a title, a brief 50-word summary of what your piece is about,

and e-mail them along with your e-mail details to the Area Chair:
