CALL FOR PAPERS
THE AMERICAN WEST IN FOREIGN-PRODUCED FILMS/ITS INFLUENCE ON FOREIGN
The Film and History Conference on "The west in Film and TV" invites
paper presentations on the issue of The American West in
Foreign-Produced Films/Its Influence on Foreign Films.
We hope to create a number of exciting panels on these issues. Please
consider the following panels as possibilities for this area:
1. The spaghetti western - the presentation of the west in these
foreign produced westerns.
2. The American West in foreign films. In many nations, films attempted
to imitate the feel of the western, while in others, local films made
western parodies or made western look-alikes.
3. The American West's representation on foreign television.
These and other interesting topics are welcomed.
The above topics are only suggestions.
Deadline for proposals is 15 August, 2002.
Early proposals always get the most compatible panels.
Proposals for single presentations must be around 250 words. Presenters
must have completed papers to share at the conference.
The conference will be held in Kansas City from November 7-10, 2002 at
the Kansas City Marriott, adjacent to the Country Club Plaza--just a few
blocks from the Nelson Art Gallery and just next door to the Kansas City
