Just got the good news that a paper I’d proposed for this year’s Visible Evidence conference has been accepted (the paper’s title: “War and the Everyday: Documentary and Representations of the Iraq War”). It looks like a really cool conference, with its “single-stream program,” in which all panels are followed by all of the conference’s participants. The conference has close ties to a series of books by University of Minnesota Press and usually seems to feature lots of good speakers on documentary, so I’m really looking forward to it.
The other good news? The conference is in Montreal. I’ve never been there before, so that should be lots of fun, too.
