Dear Friends of Film & History,
We are receiving many queries about our
conference in the Fall of 2004--yes, 2004--
dealing with War on Film & TV. The
questions are just delightful to receive,
esp. because we are still looking for Area
Chairs for the meeting.
It looks as though the meeting will be in
a Southwestern city, 11-13 November, 2004.
We will let you know the details in a few
weeks, once we sign a contract with the
Thanks for your interest, but do check the
web site regularly for updates.
Thanks so much,
Peter C. Rollins

Comments: Individual subscription information on the web site
as well as information and FAQ's about the CD-ROMs. There are
also discussion items and essays on Saving Private Ryan, Amistad,
CNN's Cold War, and a host of other topics. The Table of Contents
for the last thirty years is there as well. The last two issues deal with
The Holocaust in Film and the next two issues (2003) will focus on
the Western in a follow through from our Kansas City conference during
November of 2002.
Next conference is scheduled for 11-13 November 2004
and will focus on "War in Film, TV, and History," most
probably in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We are looking for energetic
people to serve as Area Chairs and will put a list of existing and
available Area Chair topics on the web site in the near future.
Past issues of Film & History have been devoted to World War II, The Gulf
and many individual articles over the years have surveyed the propaganda,
feature, and television dramas about War. It is a popular and pervasive
genre--second only to The Western, the topic of our last conference.
