CFP: Visible Evidence XV

Chuck brings my attention to the announcement for the next Visible Evidence conference, this time to be held in England.

Visible Evidence XV brings together scholars, artists, producers, makers and curators who engage in debates on contemporary documentary practices in all media.

Hosted by the Lincoln Chair of Communications with the support of the Grierson Trust, bfi and Wallflower, VISIBLE EVIDENCE XV will take place in one of the UK’s newest universities sited in one of its most ancient cities. As usual, the conference will address all current issues in documentary studies including documentary and history, and fact-based theatre. Screenings will include films from the British National Film and Television Archive specially digitised for the conference as well as recent Grierson prize-winners.

We invite panel and paper proposals on all topics and current issues relating to documentary. As in previous years, the conference program will include pre-constituted panels as well as a number of panels reserved for open call papers. Sessions will last for two hours and be limited to four papers.

Notification of acceptance will follow shortly thereafter. In the event that panel chairs present a full slate of papers, they will then be asked to confirm their panelists by 2 May.

In the event that a topic is accepted but the panel is open, the Lincoln Conference Office will issue a specific further call for papers by 11 April, directing respondents to the panel chairs who will have until 2 May to confirm line-ups.


Final notification of acceptance will follow by 30 April

(Papers may be submitted to both calls. Papers submitted to but rejected by panel chairs may be considered, upon request, until 9 May by the Lincoln Conference Organising Committee. Notification of acceptance will follow shortly thereafter.)
