New Deadline for Proposals is September 15
Dear Scholars of the West and of Film,
The door will remain open for proposals for our conference on The American West(s) in Film, TV, and History until 15 September-by which time everyone will be into a fall semester state of mind.
We have over thirty (30) areas of study listed at our web site and invite both senior and junior scholars to try their hand in this interdisciplinary approach to history and film.
Film & History has been publishing for 30 years and your library will have good examples of our kind of research. Most people come from a humanistic background and have an interest in film, but some of our participants this year are filmmakers.
John Cawelti is the keynote speaker and will talk about his pioneering work, The Six-gun Mystique (1971). The historical team which developed the PBS series, Frontier House will have a special evening to screen materials and to discuss their strategy for a wonderful TV series on life on the 1883 frontier.
Please visit our web site and use the additional time to consider a presentation. Graduate students should take note that graduate credit is available for the event. All these details are on the web site or if all else fails, contact Peter Rollins at RollinsPC@aol.com.
Comments: Individual subscription information on the web site as well as information and FAQ's about the CD-ROMs. There are also discussion items and essays on Saving Private Ryan, Amistad, CNN's Cold War, and a host of other topics. The Table of Contents for the last thirty years is there as well. The last two issues deal with The Holocaust in Film.
Next conference is in November, 2002 on The American West(s) in
Film, Television, and History at the Kansas City Marriott, Country Club
Plaza--just a few blocks from the Nelson Art Gallery, a major institution
and just next door to the Kansas City Arts Institute. We are looking for energetic people to serve as Area Chairs and will put a list of existing and
available Area Chair topics on the web site this summer.
Deadline for proposals is 15 September, 2002. Early proposals
always get the most compatible panels, so do not wait until the 11th hour! The Luncheon is included in the registration fee: speakers include Ray B. Browne, John Cawelti, and Jack Nachbar with special focus on the impact of Cawelti's pioneering book, "The Six-Gun Mystique"(1971).
Participating authors who have books they wish to have included in the display in Kansas City should contact their publisher and make that request. The publisher should contact Debby Pitts at The Scholar's Choice: 585-262-2048 x108 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
Some years back, we produced a wonderful issue on the The American Frontier in Film and TV and we are going back to the well(See Film & History 26.1-4 : passim.).
