War and the Everyday

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.

    Thanks. It should be lots of fun. I’ve had really good experience with single-stream conferences/symposia in the past. Even though they can be exhausting, they usually collaborate to produce a really nice intellectual community.

    I’ve never been to Montreal, so that’s definitely a major bonus. At some point, I’m sure I’ll be soliciting suggestions about places to go, restaurants and bars to check out, etc.

    Congrats! I too found out I’ll be presenting at Visible Evidence this August–my paper’s on the new political documentaries of last year and how to situate them within documentary film history. I presented at VE way back when it was at San Francisco State University. Really interesting array of panels and films and I’m sure it’s even more varied now.

    I’ll look for your paper :)

    Congrats, Jennifer. It does sound like a great conference, and hopefully I’ll be able to catch your paper, too.
