We are organizing for the 2014 American Historical Association's 2014 conference in Washington. D.C.
Our panel, "Contested Spaces: Gender and the Geography of Early American Cinema" will examine issues of gender and the moving pictures in regard to the built environment, place, architecture, and representational space.
The panel will be chaired by Hilary Hallett, Ph.D. (Columbia University).
One panelist's paper examines black women film exhibitors and claims to urban space, 1900-1910.
Another panelist will consider the relationship between New York City, entertainment spaces and performances, and the fight for woman's suffrage from 1910-1917.
If you are interested in joining our panel, please send an abstract of
no more than 250 words and a CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org by Feb. 1.
