We are delighted to announce that the Departament de Filologia Anglesa i

de Llengües Modernes Aplicades de la Comunitat Valenciana (IULMA) will be
hosting, on the 4th-6th November 2020 in Valencia, Spain, the* International
Conference on Discourses of Fictional (Digital) TV Series. *The conference
will address series originally produced in English.

Conference topics may include, but are not limited to:

  * Multimodal discourses in DTVS.
  * The function of dialogue and other forms of narrative in DTVS.
  * Characterisation. Innovations and stereotyping through characters’
    unique discourse.
  * Identity politics based on race, ethnicity, religion, age, class, or
    species in DTVS.
* Gender and sexuality in DTVS. The use of DTVS as an innovative space for
    raising awareness about social inequality
* Sexual and gender-based politics. Denunciation of patriarchal discourses,
    feminist utopias and dystopias.
  * Posthuman, transhuman, biotechnological and ecocritical discourses in
    DTVS: the overcoming of humanism and the blurring of the boundaries
    between the human, the technological and the animal.
* From Ageing to Disability Studies in DTVS: portrayals of old age, illness,
    disease, and the handicapped subject.
* Screen adaptations. Conventional vs. experimental structures and narrative
