>permutations as well as the role of the documentary in our understanding
>of the city. We invite submissions that explore the examination and
>portrayal of urban subjects in the documentary. The Film & History
>conference is particularly interested in how documentaries reflect or
>influence history and current political discourse as well as how our
>understanding of urban history has been shaped by documentaries.
