to see these resources.

Our web site has all the information you need; if you use PayPal, you

that your students can use this wonderful resource.  We even have back SETS

    Finally, please start planning for our next conference in the fall of
2004-yes, 2004.  Topic is "War in Film, Television, and History" and
the event will be in early November (as per our last meeting).  We are still
negotiating with a special site, but have not yet signed a contract.   The
next issue of Film & History will have essential information and tell your
fellow film scholars about this forum.

    If  you like film or history, you will love Film & History!
