Call for papers

A reminder that the deadline for submission of abstracts for conference papers 
is Friday 20th February 2009. 

Abstracts should be no more than 300 words in length and should be sent in a 
MS Word file to Professor John Izod ([log in to unmask]). 

This conference will bring archivists, academics, curators and researchers 
together to discuss the ways in which the study of the archives of filmmakers 
and the film industry can provide new perspectives and insights into the 
history of cinema. 

Proposals for papers of 20 minutes in length are welcomed in the following 
- archives, authorship and the directorial impulse 
- the transition from page to screen  evidence in the archives for artistic 
challenges and compromised visions 
- new perspectives on classic films 
- practical issues relating to the management and preservation of the archives 
of filmmakers 
- personal experiences of working with the archives of filmmakers 
- current issues, projects and initiatives in the field of cinema history

Papers on other related topics are welcome; and in addition proposals for 
panels will be considered (please provide full details of subject and speakers). 
We shall also be glad to review proposals for contributions to a poster session 
which will be held on Thursday 3rd September. Abstracts will be reviewed 
externally and contributors will be informed of the outcome by Friday 13th 
March 2009.

Full conference registration details will follow shortly.
