National Identities and Global Networks. University of Cincinnati and The Jacob Rader Marcus Center of the American Jewish Archives/Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion Cincinnati, Ohio USA

July 20-24, 2005

The International Association for Media and History invites media scholars and practitioners to submit complete panels, workshops, or individual papers on the theme "Projections of Race and Ethnicity: National Identities and Global Networks." We seek submissions from a variety of disciplinary perspectives on race and ethnicity in all kinds of media, within borders and across borders, in peace and at war. Topics may include but need not be limited to: expressions of race and ethnicity in silent cinema; the performance of race and ethnicity on radio; depictions of native peoples, minorities, and immigrants in film and television; close readings of signature texts; images of the enemy in the combat zone or on the homefront; the politics of imagery from the Iraq war; projections of race and ethnicity in digital imagery and on the world wide web; and the creation of ethnic archives and museums. Ours is an international organization and we solicit papers from all nations addressing media representations of a diverse range of peoples.


Individual paper proposals should include a 250-word abstract and a one-page c.v. Organizers of pre-constituted panels should include a 250-word abstract and a one-page c.v. for each paper, plus a title and brief description of the panel on a separate cover sheet. Send all proposals by January 15, 2005 to:
