Film and HistoryAn area of multiple panels for the 2016 Film & History Conference:
Gods and Heretics: Figures of Power and Subversion in Film and Television
October 26-October 30, 2016
The Milwaukee Hilton
Milwaukee, WI (USA)

DEADLINE for abstracts: June 1, 2016
AREA: Divine Recognition

This area invites papers that explore and debate cinematic portrayals of spirituality and religion, ranging from subtle, permeating themes to examining explicitly devout characters and religious ritual. Ideal presentations will identify figures of piety that may include devout saints, fanatical zealots, or conniving charlatans; religious rituals may represent real-life traditions or fictional fabrications. This area welcomes the discussion of large-scale biblical epics, intimate spiritual journeys, and other themes that critically reflect on the intersection of faith and film.
