This panel seeks to understand the critical articulation of "race" to "class" in committed cinema, whether documentary, experimental, avant-garde, or narrative fiction. Priority will be given to proposals focusing on films concerning the "Global South" or "Third World," but attention to the "West," "Global North," or "First World" is also welcome. Proposals should indicate a strong foundation in film and/or cultural theory, attend critically to cinematic form and structure as well as to content, and be oriented intellectually toward a critique of political economy.
Please submit 250-350-word abstract, along with a short bibliography and brief biographical statement, by 1 August 2013 to Terri Ginsberg (firstname.lastname@example.org).
