CFP: Cinema and 'Americanization' in the Early Studio Era
Society for Cinema Studies Meeting, Minneapolis, March 6-9, 2003
I am seeking paper proposals for an interdisciplinary panel that will explore relationships between features, shorts, or serials, produced by
the major studios or independents, and historical, governmental, or cultural organizations promoting -- or potentially contesting -- 'Americanization' initiatives during the teens and 1920s in the U.S.
Papers might address texts, stars, genres, publicity/marketing,
or industrial strategies; exhibition practices in small towns or urban centers; links between cinema and public art or modes of civic performance, such as historical pageantry, expositions, or fairs.
E-mail queries are welcome. By Aug. 15, 2002, send one-page abstract and brief c.v.to the address below.
