[Commlist] CFP: Sustainable Futures: Ethics, Responsibility and Care in Film, Television, Screen Studies and Practices Conference 2023

Tue Oct 18 22:06:29 GMT 2022

*CFP: BAFTSS 11^th Annual Conference. 3^rd – 5^th April 2023. University of Lincoln.*

*Sustainable Futures: Ethics, Responsibility and Care in Film, Television, Screen Studies and Practices.*

Recent years have seen academics and practitioners grapple with the ethical dimensions of film, television and screen studies and of screen media production, distribution and consumption. This includes efforts to address the various forms of environmental and personal harm caused by screen media industries, both now and in the past, and to imagine new ways of doing things. It also includes ongoing debates about the future of film, television and screen theories, histories and practices, their sustainability in the current higher education landscape (in the UK and globally) and their ethical obligations to be more inclusive, socially responsible and politically engaged.

*_We invite proposals for papers and pre-formed panels_* on any aspect of the theme. Theoretical, historical and practice-based approaches are all equally welcome. Topics might include but are not restricted to:

·Environmental, democratic, ethical, social, economic futures in film, television and screen storytelling or representation

·Sustainable futures of the past: histories of screen reflections of sustainable discourses

·Sustainable futures and screen archives

·Theories and philosophies of sustainable, environmental and ecological filmmaking, representations and aesthetics

·Environmental sustainability in film, television and screen production

·Creative industries and the economic sustainability of current models of funding, distribution and exhibition

·Creating sustainable working environments in screen cultures: ethical creative labour

·Ethics of decolonizing and diversifying the discipline for a sustainable future

·Sustaining the discipline: what next for film, television and screen studies?

·The unsustainable academy? The impact of precarity, inequality and burnout on the future of Film, TV and Screen Studies
