41st Anniversary Convention, Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
April 7-11, 2010
Montreal, Quebec - Hilton Bonaventure
The aim of this panel is to explore the place of interpretation in contemporary film studies. The central question that the panel will address: what is the value of the work we do when we read movies?
We seek papers that respond directly to that question. We also welcome readings of individual films that, in the process of their unfolding, make a case for the value of interpretation—or that discuss and/or demonstrate the importance of reading well.
Send 250-500 word abstracts to Phillip Novak at firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline: September 30, 2009
Please include with your abstract:
Name and Affiliation
A/V requirements (if any; $10 handling fee)
