CFP: Screen Conference 2011

This sounds right up my alley...

Call for Papers:
21st International Screen Studies Conference
1-3 July 2011
University of Glasgow, Scotland

We invite papers on any topic in screen studies, i.e. cinema, television and digital media. Submissions for pre-formed three-person panels will be considered but not prioritised.

Repositioning Screen History will be the subject of the plenaries and will form a strand running throughout the conference.

25 years after the 'historical turn' in film studies, we want to explore what new approaches and theoretical models for the study of screen history have been emerging over the past decades, and how changing environments and contexts have altered fields of study.

To this end we encourage submissions addressing the following questions and issues:
  • Rethinking the Canon (directors, genres, movements, institutions, periodisations)
  • New sources for new histories
  • Issues of preservation and restoration
  • Archival theories and practices
  • The impact of digital technologies
  • Decentring European Cinema and Television in the context of global media (cross-cultural influences, cooperation, distribution, reception, the impact of migration)
  • Film History, Pedagogy, and Disciplinary Identity
Please submit your proposal using the submission template to screen - AT -, marking the email subject box 'Conference 2011', to arrive no later than Friday 7 January 2011. For updates, please visit the conference website.
