Proposals are now being accepted for the Film & History Area. Join us
this year as a returning or first-time participant in the scenic
Southwestern city of Albuquerque! Our area is concerned with the impact
of motion pictures on our society and how films represent and interpret
history. Presentations can, for example, feature analyses of individual
films and/or TV programs from historical perspectives, surveys of
documents related to the production of films, or analyses of history and
culture as explored through film. Genres could include historical films
attempting to define history, propaganda films, documentaries,
docudramas, newsreels and broadcast media, war films, music videos and
concert films, reality shows, avant-garde, cinema verite, actualities,
and direct cinema.

Listed below are some suggestions for possible presentations and/or
panels, but topics not included here are also welcome: historical eras
and coverage of historical events, popular culture, politics and
government, gender, ethnicity, race, class, sports and leisure, science
and technology, religion and spirituality, pedagogy, film schools and

If you wish to form your own panel within the Film & History area, we
would be glad to facilitate your needs.  Roundtable sessions and
international participation are also encouraged.
