CFP: Theorizing Character in Documentary (Visible Evidence XX)

I have decided to submit to Visible Evidence this year and am interested in proposing a panel. Let me know if you are interested.

Call for papers
Proposed panel for Visible Evidence XX (Stockholm, August 15-18, 2013)

Theorizing Character in Contemporary Nonfiction
To further one of the conference themes of “Affect, Agency, and Social Mobilization” I am proposing a panel theorizing “character” (as an idea, a narrational device, a conceptual category) in documentary film, with an emphasis on contemporary documentary. This may cover a number of areas: character driven documentary, "new documentary," reality TV, or any relevant strain in contemporary nonfiction. I've included the conference CFP below for guidance.

If interested, please contact me at ccagle AT temple DOT edu. The conference deadline is end of January, but I'd like to hear from anyone interested within the next month, by January 5, in order to gauge interest and to let everyone plan accordingly.
