Deadline extended for 2013 Conference on Cultural Heritage Film
To Scholars and Film Makers :
Archaeological Legacy Institute has extended its “Call for Papers” deadline to December 21, 2012, for The Archaeology Channel Conference on Cultural Heritage Film to be held May 8-10, 2013, in Eugene, Oregon, USA, in conjunction with our Tenth annual installment of The Archaeology Channel International film and Video Festival (May 7-11, 2013). The Conference will be held at the University of Oregon Baker Downtown Center. This is an international event, with films and film-makers coming from around the globe. Conference presenters will receive tickets to all film screenings.
Papers on applications of film (academic, cultural, practical, educational) will be considered for conference presentation. There will also be an open discussion of Festival films. The goals of this conference are three-fold: (1) to promote the creation, distribution and use of cultural heritage film as an influence for broad cultural awareness and understanding; (2) to bring together educators, film-makers, archaeologists, anthropologists, historians, journalists, historic preservationists, environmentalists, geographers, and others interested in cultural heritage and its connections to the natural environment; and (3) to encourage the exchange of new ideas and approaches to employ film for the common good of all humanity.
Conference participants in May 2012 came from diverse places, including Algeria, Ethiopia, Australia, Canada, Iran, the USA, and the UK. We look forward to significant growth in participation for 2013.
Again, the new registration deadline for the Conference is December 21, 2012.
The official call for papers is posted in our Festival area at http://www.archaeologychannel.org/events-guide/tac-conference-on-cultural-heritage-film. TAC Festival information may be found now at http://www.archaeologychannel.org/events-guide/international-film-and-video-festival, where hotel information will soon be posted. We encourage you to participate (for no fee) even if you don’t present a paper. Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at next year’s event. Please share this information as widely as possible.
