Below is part of the CALL FOR PANELS for the VISIBLE EVIDENCE VIII
conference in Holland.  I plan to submit a paper and am interested in
forming a panel if 2 or more comrades have interests related to my topic
(newsreels, outtakes, fakery, the twenties, Red Scares, all of the above?)

My paper will be called "Tom Mix Meets Leon Trotsky:  Newsreel Outtakes as
Documentary."  This will be an analysis of footage shot in Hollywood in
1928 for Fox Movietone News and consigned to the outtakes archive.
Newsreel promotion of feature films; impersonation and fakery; topical
politics as entertainment; self-censorship in the newsreel editing room.

Contact me directly if you can go to VISIBLE EVIDENCE and might want to
co-propose a panel (ahead of the individual paper deadline).

Below is part of the CALL

********AUGUST 17-20, 2000,   Utrecht and Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The 2000 Visible Evidence Conference is the eighth in a series of major
interdisciplinary conferences on the representation of (social) reality in
documentary film and video.  Since the key issue of representing reality
explores a wide range of cultural, political, social, historical,
ethnographic, medical and pedagogical questions, we welcome proposals from
all academic fields.
All proposals for panels must be received by e-mail, by February 16th, 2000.
