Dear Scholars of Film, Popular  Culture, and Literature,

    This is the last call for abstracts and  proposals.  The door shuts next

    Please check out this opportunity to present your  research or to immerse
yourself in a meeting charged with studying film and  history, a topic of
growing interest.  (Not, by the way film history--a  different topic.)

    Those who wish to talk about _Fahrenheit 9/11_ will  be listed as
respondents at
a monster session on Saturday led by Gary Edgerton of _The Journal of
Popular Film and Television_.  A short, pungent analysis will make you part  of the
active side of the program and gain a place in the printed program.   This
session will go for three hours or so due to the impact and import of this
controversial film.


    Below is the updated CFP:

UPDATE of deadline for  "War in Film, TV, and History."
"War in Film, TV, and  History" paper proposals now due by 15 September
This conference is  sponsored by the Film and History League, the journal
Film  & History, and the Literature/Film  Association.
The new deadline for  proposals gives researchers and teachers a bit more
time to indicate an  interest in a meeting which will include scholars from
across the globe.  There are 36 areas of interest, all  listed on the web
for Film &  History:
_www.filmandhistory.org_ (
Please check them  out.
Of special note are  the featured speakers:  Adrian  Cronauer (GM, Vietnam);
Jeanine Basinger (The  WWII Combat Film); Lawrence Suid (Guts and Glory); and
Frank Thompson (Alamo  expert).  There will be a plenary  session to discuss
Michael Moore's recent  controversial Fahrenheit 9/11.  Many  journal editors
will be present to  meet authors.   Major  publishers will have
on  site.
This conference will  be conducted near the DFW Airport and will run from
on 11 November until  the noon of 14 November.
