Call for Papers
THE CITY Area
2006 Film & History Conference
“The Documentary Tradition”
8-12 November, 2006
Dolce Conference Center – Dallas, TX
Deadline: July 20, 2006
AREA: The City
The cityscape has always featured prominently in fiction films. How has the city and the urban experience been interpreted in documentaries, docudramas, and propaganda films? The Film & History League calls for papers examining the role of the city in documentary and its many permutations as well as the role of the documentary in our understanding of the city. We invite submissions that explore the examination and portrayal of urban subjects in the documentary. The Film & History conference is particularly interested in how documentaries reflect or influence history and current political discourse as well as how our understanding of urban history has been shaped by documentaries.
Send your proposal (200 to 400 words) to Dr. Laura Wittern-Keller, Film & History Conference Area Chair, Department of History, University of North Carolina Wilmington, 601 S. College Road, Wilmington, NC 28403-5957. Email to WitternKellerL@uncw.edu. Panel proposals, for up to four presenters, are also welcome. The panel proposal should include a title and abstract with each individual submitting a separate paper proposal. Deadline: July 20, 2006.
This Area, comprising multiple panels, is a part of the Film and History League’s “The Documentary Tradition” conference for 2006. See the Film & History web site (www.filmandhistory.org) for details about the upcoming meetings and about other areas of scholarship. Guest artists: D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.
