 Proposals are invited from researchers in film and other media for
 Celebrating 1895, an international conference on early film organised
 by the National Museum of Photography, Film & Television, Bradford
 in association with the University of Derby.
 The aim of the conference is to present current research on early film
 (formal,economic and technological developments, audience and reception
 studies) and to examine the relation of cinema to other forms of popular
 entertainment in the early part of the century. It is envisaged that one
 of the strands of the conference will address archival and museological
 issues, another film and propoganda. A symposium on early European cinema
 is also planned. Lectures given by keynote speakers,together with a
 selection of papers presented at the conference, will be published as
 the proceedings of the conference.
 Proposals for papers are cordially invited.  Those wishing to give a paper
 should submit a 300-word abstract and a brief curriculum vitae no later
