A belated CALL FOR PAPERS for a proposed panel on...

Narration and Migration in Autobiographical Documentary

Seeking papers addressing the autobiographical turn in documentary, as
filmmakers and videographers turn the camera upon themselves, using it as a
tool for exploration of the self and for situating subjectivity within a
broader social context. Of particular interest are narrative techniques
developed by artists exploring their bicultural heritage and the thematics
of familial (im)migration. How are sound, image, and words deployed to
negotiate processes of differentiation between self and family, and
further, to map alterities that are simultaneously generational and
cultural? What role do vectors of gender, class, and ethnicity play in
shaping the narrative form of autobiography? How has digital video
redefined the forms of self-reflexivity at work, conceding the
epistemological limits of autobiography as a form of knowledge production
about self and other?

Please submit abstracts electronically by August 15, 2005 to:
