Screen Studies Conference 2011

Date posted: 03/12/2010

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

Call for papers deadline: Friday 7 January 2011

The 21st conference is organised by Screen journal and will be programmed by Screen editors Sarah Street and Tim Bergfelder.

Plenary speakers are:
Mark Betz (Kings College, London)
Christine Geraghty (University of Glasgow)
Jan-Christopher Horak (UCLA)
Barbara Klinger (University of Indiana)

The organisers 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, they 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 they 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)
  • Screen History, Pedagogy, and Disciplinary Identity
