Film and the Humanities.
O'Connor, John E., Ed.
This report on a conference, which brought together representatives of various humanistic disciplines to explore the cross-disciplinary appeal of film study as well as the use of film in stimulating scholarship and teaching, includes a narrative summary of the day's conversations and issues raised, as well as of reprints of articles that suggest different theoretical models that have been applied to film and film use in the humanities. In the first of these, William Arrowsmith presents a rationale for the study of film within the context of a traditional humanities orientation. John E. O'Connor relates film study to the study of history, James C. Curtis and J. Joseph Huthmacher discuss American studies and film, Dean Wilson Hartley presents a primer on literature through film, Jerry H. Gill explores philosophy and film, and Jay Ruby relates the use of film in anthropology. Lists of books and articles relating film study to the humanities are also provided, as well as a guide to organizations and periodicals in this area and general reference aids for locating and evaluating films.
