Film and History welcomes presentations on a wide range of film topics contributing to popular culture.

Suggestions for topics include:

  • Films portraying historical events with great accuracy or which provide fresh or controversial perspectives (e.g., Spotlight; F.K.)
  • Films exploring the nature of complex characters or incorporating social, political, and cultural themes (e.g., heroism, friendship, injustice, racism, betrayal, ambition)
  • Film adaptations of other media, (i.e., novels, short stories, theatre) or from real life
  • Film genres, such as comedy, crime film, the Western, war film, or science fiction
  • Filmmaking and film directors (e.g., Scorsese’s portrayal of women)
  • History of the cinema and economic and cultural impacts of film on society
  • Academy Awards’ nominations, policies, and practices

 

Please submit your paper proposals by following the 2018 Paper Proposals link at: https://nepca.blog/2018-conference by June 1, 2018.

 

NEPCA presentations are generally 15-20 minutes in length and may be delivered either formally or informally. As Area Chair of Film and History, I am happy to preview your proposal. However, all final submissions should be “CC’d” to me at cmitchel@springfieldcollege.edu in addition to your submission to the program chair.

 

NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences that emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment consisting of graduate students, independent scholars, junior faculty, and senior scholars.
