Urang will present a paper titled I Was Nineteen: Konrad Wolf's Post-Traumatic Picaresque. Denny will present From the Reality of War to the Real of War in Restrepo.
The Society for Cinema & Media Studies annual conference provides a forum for scholars and teachers of film and media studies to present and hear new research; to provide a supportive environment for networking, mentoring, and collaboration among scholars otherwise separated by distance, language, or disciplinary boundaries; and to promote the field of cinema and media studies among its practitioners, to other disciplines, and to the public at large, in part through public recognition of award worthy achievements and other significant milestones within the field.
