>>From the 1920s, early health and safety films closely paralleled 
>>documentary filmmaking; engaging in fictional and non-fictional 
>>narratives of public bodies and national identities. In the postwar 
>>era these films, generally government funded, popularized ideals of 
>>world health. Visual representations depicted, often 
>>scientifically, cultures degrading morality, racial impurity, or 
>>sexual degeneracy as being responsible for the spread of disease. 
>>The cinema of hygiene and injury has fed anxious populations who 
>>embraced alien invasions and feared invisible contaminants. Public 
>>health and safety films continue to evolve from this matrix of 
>>subtly changing cultural boundaries, shifting sexual identities, 
>>and ever growing global incursions into the private sphere of the 
>>public body.
>We are inviting submissions on all aspects of public health and 
>safety as it relates to the documentary tradition. Deadline for 
>submission is August 15, 2006.
>The Film and History League conference details can be found at 
>www.filmandhistory.org. The meeting will run from 8-12 November, 
>2006 in the Dolce Conference Center near the DFW airport.  A 
>spectrum of other areas will evolve on the web site over time.
