[ecrea] CFP Film-Philosophy Conference 2017

Fri Feb 03 18:52:19 GMT 2017

The Film-Philosophy Conference 2017 will be held at Lancaster University, UK, on 4-6 July.

Confirmed keynotes:
• Professor Robert B. Pippin (University of Chicago)
• Dr Lisa Åkervall (Trinity College Dublin)
• Professor Felicity Colman (Kingston University, London)
Also, Professor D. N. Rodowick (University of Chicago) will be screening and speaking on his long-form video, PLATO'S PHAEDRUS

The Film-Philosophy Conference 2017 at Lancaster University invites proposals for presentations on any subject related to film and philosophy. There is no single overall theme. As with last year, we are using a “track” system that will provide a number of broad headings to which a presenter may wish to attach their submission. There is, of course, an Open track if you feel that your paper does not fit within any of the other tracks.

The tracks for 2017 are:
• Open Track
• Speculative Realism and Film
• Film and Ethics
• Philosophy of Video Essays / Essay Films
• Feminist Philosophy and Film
• Eco-philosophy and Film
• Temporality and Film
• Film and the other arts
• Cognitive film-philosophy
• Emotion/Affect and Film
• Cavell and film-philosophy
• Race and Film
• Philosophy and film genres

As with last year’s conference, we are *only accepting individual proposals for presentations of 20 minutes*. There will be no pre-constituted panel proposals. We hope that the track system will allow for papers to group organically around common themes and approaches.
We invite 300-word abstract proposals to be submitted by *6 February 2017.*
All abstracts will be considered by at least two members of the conference committee and decisions will be announced in March 2017.
