Call for papers

Film & History, the Historians Film Committee's journal of interdisciplinary analysis of film, is accepting submissions on the topic, 'The Documentary Tradition'.

"The first volume will focus on a spectrum of documentaries in chronological order ­of both international and US vintage. Classic documentaries will be examined and placed in their cultural contexts. Papers on films from Nanook and March of Time to The War Room and An Inconvenient Truth are welcomed", said the editor Dr. Loren PQ Baybrook.

She added: "The second volume will examine a variety of topics and issues for documentaries across cultures and borders. The possibilities here are broad, but we welcome papers that stress the role of the documentary in interpreting, reflecting, or attempting to change history. Race, class, policy, and the impact of media are likely topics."
