Proposals are now being accepted for the Film & History Area. Join us this
year as a returning or first-time participant! Our area is concerned with
the impact of motion pictures on our society and how films represent and
interpret history. Presentations can, for example, feature analyses of
individual films and/or TV programs from historical perspectives, surveys
of documents related to the production of films, or analyses of history and
culture as explored through film. Genres could include historical films
attempting to define history, propaganda films, documentaries, docudramas,
newsreels and broadcast media, war films, music videos and concert films,
reality shows, avant-garde, cinema verite, actualities, and direct cinema.

Listed below are some suggestions for possible presentations and/or panels,
but topics not included here are also welcome:
" Historical eras and coverage of historical events
" Popular culture
" Politics and government
" Gender
" Ethnicity, race, and class
" Sports and leisure
" Science and technology
" Religion and spirituality
" Pedagogy
" Film schools and theory
If you wish to form your own panel within the Film & History area, we would
be glad to facilitate your needs. Roundtable sessions are also encouraged
and international participation encouraged.
