>Thanks to the discovery and analysis of previously unseen archival materials
>over the past ten years, scholars of German Cinema have greatly expanded
>their understanding not only of Weimar Cinema but also of the "pre-Caligari"
>period before 1919. In this context, renewed attention has been paid to the
>roles of women as characters, stars, and spectators. Yet we still have given
>little account of the important function of women as directors, producers,
>editors, screenwriters, and critics. The early pre-Weimar period deserves
>particular consideration as a time of exploration and of experimentation
>with the gendered division of labor in film production. We are seeking
>papers that address the contributions of and working conditions for female
>film workers in the silent and early sound eras. Examples include Fern
>Andra, Liesl Karstadt, Thea von Harbou, Asta Nielsen, Janet Wolf, Henny
>Porten, Lotte Reiniger, Leontine Sagan, Leni Riefenstahl, Ruth Goetz, and
>Luise Fleck, etc. Papers on women writing on film (Emilie Altenloh, Claire
>Goll, Malwine Rennert, etc.) are also encouraged. Send one-page abstracts to
>Sara Hall and Elizabeth Frye [log in to unmask] and [log in to unmask] by January
>15, 2006.
