Area CFP: The Cuban Missile Crisis in Film, TV, and History
What, if any, are the effects of the Cuban Missile Crisis on the American psyche?
How did those 13 days in October change both our interpretations of history and dramatic representations of war and conflict in film? Did the Cuban Missile Crisis impact the reputations of the individuals involved? How has this event been depicted in film, TV, and history? From films like Thirteen Days, The Missiles of October, and The Fog of War, to TV mini-series like Kennedy the Cuban Missile Crisis has remained a defining moment in American history on film.
The Film and History League, with the Literature/Film Association, will be holding its conference on “War in Film, Television, and History” during November 11-14, 2004, near Dallas, TX. Full details on the location, registration procedures, and additional area topics can be found on our web site.
Deadline for proposals is July 30, 2004.
