CFP: Console-ing Passions 2014


Call for Papers
Console-ing Passions conference

April 10-12, 2014
University of Missouri, Columbia, MO

Keynote speaker: Angela McRobbie, Professor of Communication, Goldsmiths, University of London

Founded by a group of feminist media scholars and artists in 1989, Console-ing Passions held its first official conference at the University of Iowa in 1992. Since that time, Console-ing Passions has become the leading international scholarly network for feminist research in television, video, audio, and new media.

The 2014 conference invites individual papers, pre-constituted panels, and workshops that consider the breadth of feminist issues on television, video, audio, and new media. We seek proposals that address the broader aims of Console-ing Passions: gender, race and ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, class, and (dis)ability. Possible topics include:

  • media production and industries 
  • media audiences and fans
  • textual analysis and criticism 
  • gaming and virtual worlds
  • feminist and queer theory 
  • neoliberalism and the economy 
  • transmedia and convergence culture 
  • music and sound studies 
  • transnational cultural flows 
  • history and theory of media 
  • social media and the Internet 
  • theories of post-television 
  • social movements and media activism 
  • religion and media 
  • youth culture and media

Submissions can include individual papers, pre-constituted panels, workshops, and screenings. Detailed instructions on submission and further information available at the Console-ing Passions website. Deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM (Central) on Tuesday, October 1, 2013.
