Utrecht University's Institute for Media and Re/Presentation presents:

CALL FOR PAPERS

VISIBLE EVIDENCE VIII

AUGUST 17-20, 2000
Utrecht and Amsterdam, The Netherlands

The 2000 Visible Evidence Conference is presented by Utrecht University in
co-operation with the Filmmuseum and Film Theatre 't Hoogt.

The 2000 Visible Evidence Conference is the eighth in a series of major
interdisciplinary conferences on the representation of (social) reality in
documentary film and video. Since the key issue of representing reality
explores a wide range of cultural, political, social, historical,
ethnographic, medical and pedagogical questions, we welcome papers from all
academic fields.

We would also like to involve filmmakers, curators and producers in debates
on contemporary documentary practice, and to explore the space between the
perspectives of scholars and cultural entrepreneurs. Filmmakers Johan van
der Keuken and Peter Forgacs (conditionally) are happy to participate in the
conference.

At this time you may submit a paper directly to a panel listed below (to the
panel chair), or to the Open Call address listed at the bottom of this page.
In either case you will need to submit the following: 1) a one page paper
proposal, 2) a brief description of your experience relevant to the
proposal, 3) your e-mail address and phone number.

All proposals for panels must be received by e-mail, by March 31st, 2000.
