2006 Film and History League Conference
‚EURoeThe Documentary Tradition‚EURĚ

AREA: Music and Performance

The interaction between film and music provides a rich opportunity from
which to examine the political and cultural realities of popular music forms
and the interplay between these forms.  Considering the conference‚EUR(tm)s
title,‚EURoeThe Documentary Tradition,‚EURĚ research that is able, within a
documentary film form, to make sense of musical practice in culture and
potentially everyday life will be considered for the ‚EURoeMusic and
Performance‚EURĚ category.  Tour films, concert/theater films, documentary
narratives, and fan biopics--to name a few formats--are all potential areas
for exploration.
The conference will provide a rich context from which to
explore these topics in panel form as well as with other opportunities
including an appearance by concert filmmakers D.A. Pennebaker and Chris
Hegedus as keynote speakers.

The Film and History League conference details can be found at  The meeting will run from 8-12 November, 2006 in
the Dolce Conference Center near the DFW airport.  A spectrum of other areas
is evolving on the web site at
