Also coming up are the deadlines for panel submissions for the 2006 Film & History conference, on the topic of The Documentary Tradition. A list of calls for papers is up, and most require response by the latter part of July. In contrast to SCMS, in documentary studies apparently, the classics are in with a vengeance.
Since I've been working on a paper on 1960s pseudodocumentaries, I may fit that into one of the conference's rubrics. I still have to decide if I can commit the cash for travel to Dallas in the fall. I already demurred on the Frameworks conference for that reason.
These were the conventions... before the War.
