Call for Papers
Panel: Cable Television: Changing the Channels
Society for Cinema and Media Studies
March 3-7, 2004
Cable is increasingly influential in the television industry, but it is still marginal in television studies. I'm seeking papers for a panel on cable that address topics such as industrial practices, policy, notions of 'quality,' broadcasters' responses, issues of race, class, gender and sexuality, etc. Proposals on frequently-studied shows like 'The Sopranos' should convey a novel approach.
Proposals should use the Paper Standard Abstract Form for Papers (http://www.cinemastudies.org/04conf/2004saf.htm) to provide a 50-word abstract, a 300-400 word proposal, a brief biographical note (100 words or less) and short bibliography (10 item maximum). Details about the conference, application instructions and proper forms can be found at the website below.
Send questions and proposals to Jennifer Fuller via email. Proposals can also be mailed to the address listed below.
