CFP: Making Movie$: Money On and Off the Screen

Film & History will hold its annual conference on November 20-24, 2013, in Madison, Wisconsin. The topic of the meeting is "Making Movie$: The Figure of Money On and Off the Screen." The program is divided into thematic sections, many of which would be of interest to business and economic historians—for example: "Capital, Inc.: Capitalists, Capitalism, and Corporations in the Cinematic Imagination"; "Financing the Frontier: Money and the Cinematic West"; and "Market Manners: The Exchanges between Economies and Cinematic Style." A complete list, leading to full descriptions, is provided on the conference website. The deadline for submissions is July 1, 2013.
