[ecrea] Call for Papers: Screen Studies Conference

Tue Oct 02 18:30:51 GMT 2018

The 29th International Screen Studies Conference, organised by the journal /Screen/, will be programmed by /Screen/ editors Alison Butler and Alastair Phillips.

Confirmed keynote speakers are :

  * Dr David Campany (University of Westminster)
  * Professor Laura Marcus (University of Oxford)
  * Professor Haidee Wasson (Concordia University)

The Editors welcome proposals for papers, audiovisual essays and pre-constituted panels on any subject for this year’s conference. We are particularly keen to encourage contributors to a programming strand titled ‘Screen Studies Beyond the Field’, devoted to the themes of interdisciplinarity and impact in the contemporary audiovisual humanities and beyond.

Screen studies have from their inception taken a plural and hybrid approach to the ways that pedagogy and scholarship may be constituted and located. Many of its key vectors of enquiry remain shaped by the ways that research questions may be inflected by their conversation with other established, or emerging, disciplinary practices or bodies of knowledge. As we move into the second decade of the century, audiovisual scholarship is increasingly shifting beyond the boundaries of the academy into not just traditional locations such as the museum and art gallery, but other sites of public engagement and civic discourse. Much of this work is also becoming more multi-dimensional with the space of the screen as both an idea and a form of embodied critical practice becoming aligned with broader questions related to science, medicine, politics, the environment and philosophy.

This year’s Screen conference seeks to not only explore these current developments, but also take stock of the long history of the field’s engagement with disciplinary plurality. We are keen to encourage work that speaks to the following topics:

  * Conceptual and methodological interrogations of interdisciplinarity
    within the disciplinary contexts of screen studies
  * Explorations of formative historical moments of interdisciplinarity
    within screen studies and film theory
  * Case-studies of innovative forms of public engagement or impact
    within the audiovisual humanities
  * Research projects that engage with the relationship between the
    moving image and other forms of intellectual enquiry that either
    exist beyond the arts and humanities or the academy as a whole
  * Innovative modes of publishing and disseminating research

The deadline for submitting proposals is Sunday, 6 January 2019. Please note that submissions for pre-constituted three-person panels will be considered, but not prioritised.
