EARLY PHOTOGRAPHY IN NEW ENGLAND: From Heliography to the Handheld Kodak, 1830-1900
9 March 2013. Historic Deerfield, Deerfield, MA. "We invite papers that will explore the work of photographers, amateur and professional alike; photographic studios and galleries, and makers and marketers of photographs, photographic equipment and supplies in New England. How has early photography shaped perceptions of identity and regionalism? How did photographers, amateur and professional, engage debates about the role of photography in culture and the fine arts? How did they advance technical and scientific projects or advertise their business? Most important, how did photography bring people, places and events from other parts of the world to New England audiences, and New England to the world? In short, how can we understand the role of early photography in New England from technical, economic, social and artistic perspectives? Papers should be theoretical or analytical in nature rather than descriptive and should be approximately 20 minutes long. The symposium offers an honorarium and a travel stipend. Please submit 250-word proposals and a two-page c.v. via electronic mail to Martha McNamara (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Josh Lane (email@example.com). Proposals should include the title of the paper and the presenter's name. The deadline for submissions is December 14th.

20-23 October 2012 . American Studies Association Annual Conference, Baltimore, Maryland. "This panel examines the relationship between imagination and transformation, in particular, as it is produced in visual narrative culture. Like many of the objects it interrogates, the panel works through the politics of culture at a time when culture and geopolitics have become deeply imbricated. By interrogating the various genres-thriller, documentary, police procedural-through which it has been represented, the individual papers show how visual narrative culture has responded to, worked through, and-in turn-helped shape popular perceptions of the 'War on Terror'. The central focus of the panel is on the relationship between fictional representation and documentary reportage-not only between different texts and genres (Green Zone and Standard Operating Procedure; fiction and documentary) but also between texts and their sources (Green Zone and Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq's Green Zone, the fictional film's journalistic source material). Through this focus, the panel is able to examine and account for the transformed relationships between fact and fiction, reality and reportage, truth and the event, politics and ethics, that pertain under the 'War on Terror'. These transformations are summed up most clearly in Donald Rumsfeld's oft-quoted descriptionof the "unknown unknowns" and "unknown knowns" in which the 'War on Terror' must contend. The panel shows how culture-and visual culture in particular-has been a principal location in which the politics and the ethics of the 'War on Terror' have been received, worked through, negotiated, and understood. For consideration, please send a 400-500 word abstract, a current CV and any inquiries to Hamilton Carroll (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 10th."
