Proposals are now being accepted for the Film & History Area. Join us this
year as a returning or first-time participant in the scenic Southwestern
city of Albuquerque! Our area is concerned with the impact of motion
pictures on our society and how films represent and interpret history.
Presentations can, for example, feature analyses of individual films and/or
TV programs from historical perspectives, surveys of documents related to
the production of films, or analyses of history and culture as explored
through film. Genres could include historical films attempting to define
history, propaganda films, documentaries, docudramas, newsreels and
broadcast media, war films, music videos and concert films, reality shows,
avant-garde, cinema verite, actualities, and direct cinema.
Listed below are some suggestions for possible presentations and/or panels,
but topics not included here are also welcome:

      Historical eras and coverage of historical events

      Popular culture

      Politics and government


      Ethnicity, race, and class

      Sports and leisure

      Science and technology

      Religion and spirituality


      Film schools and theory

If you wish to form your own panel within the Film & History area, we would
be glad to facilitate your needs. Roundtable sessions and international
participation are also encouraged.
