CFP UPDATE.  Conference on “The Documentary Tradition” 
The November conference on “The Documentary Tradition,” 
sponsored by the Film and History League, is fully described on  the 
Film & History web site:  _www.filmandhistory.org_ 
(http://www.filmandhistory.org/) .  (The meeting  will 
be conducted near the Dallas/Ft.Worth airport, 8-12 November,  2006.) 
This notice outlines the general rubrics for the meeting.  Here 
are the general categories; specific areas are numbered here and can be  seen 
in detail at the web site (above).  Each area, by the way, will have multiple 
panels. 
This panoply of topics will attract many papers, but humanists  
wishing to take the “plunge” into film studies are welcomed.  Come for 
edification and, if you are not giving a paper, be a “moderating”  
influence. 
Genres, Styles, and Aesthetics (11 areas) 
Classics (3 areas) 
Eras and Places (4 areas) 
Social Documentaries and Topics (4 areas) 
National Traditions (10 areas) 
Networks (7 areas) 
War (5 areas) 
Methodology (1 area) 
Many of us got our start at such meetings back in the Dark Ages;  beginners 
are welcomed!
