Special Call for Submissions: “The Documentary Tradition”

Sponsored by:
Film and History: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Film and Television Studies
(Volume 38: 1 – 2, 2008)

Editor: Dr. Loren PQ Baybrook

The editor invites submissions for a special year of Film & History: An 
Interdisciplinary Journal of Film and Television Studies (Vol. 38:1-2, 
2008). The topic is “The Documentary Tradition”­a timely subject after the 
2006 biennial meeting of the Center for the Study of Film and History 
(publisher of the journal) in Dallas, where over 500 scholars delivered papers.

The first volume (38:1, 2008) will focus on a spectrum of documentaries in 
chronological order­of both international and US vintage.  Classic 
documentaries (see web site for hints about method) will be examined and 
placed in their cultural contexts.  Papers on films from Nanook and March 
of Time to The War Room and An Inconvenient Truth are welcomed.

The second volume (38.2, 2008) will examine a variety of topics and issues 
for documentaries across cultures and borders.  The possibilities here are 
broad, but we welcome papers that stress the role of the documentary in 
interpreting, reflecting, or attempting to change history.  Race, class, 
policy, and the impact of  media are likely
topics.  The 2008 conference touched on Women’s documentaries, the City, Asian
identity, the New Deal, World War II, Canadian documentary, but other topic
points are invited.

Guidelines: Film & History (vol. 38:1 – 2, 2008)
Each volume will contain four to six essays that will undergo a peer review 
process. International submissions are welcomed and encouraged. The journal 
requires MLA format, although international and interdisciplinary 
conventions may be substituted (for example, British spelling and 
punctuation). Endnotes are mandatory, and authors should provide a brief 
biography. Relevant illustrations are strongly encouraged and must be 
submitted with the final draft.
