The Film and History League, along with the Literature/Film Association announces a conference on "War in Film, Television, and History" for November 11-14, 2004.
Papers, panels are invited with a deadline of 30 July for abstracts. Film & History and the Literature/Film Quarterly are the journals connected with this meeting and the web site for F&H will have a click point to the companion group. At least one book will emerge from this conference and the papers given will be in the pool for that project; in addition, a CD-ROM is planned as are special issues of the journals. Many papers will, as a result, reach a broad audience.
The featured luncheon speaker is Adrian Cronauer whose "life" was appropriated by Barry Levinson for Good Morning Vietnam (1987), starring Robin Williams. Cronauer will discuss how his treatment and script evolved into the final projection.
