We invite panel and individual-paper proposals for the “Screen Media and Sexual Politics Conference,” to be held at Plymouth State University (Plymouth, New Hampshire) October 8-9, 2004. The members of the conference committee are seeking contributions that explore the evolution, representation, and social construction of sex, gender, sexuality and/or related phenomena in various screen-media forms (e.g., film, video, television, the Internet) from 1895 to the present. Conference participants will investigate the complex relations between screen-media forms/styles and sexual politics (past and present), as well as the ideological and social ramifications of those relations. Participants are encouraged to interpret the conference theme broadly and innovatively. Papers may not exceed 20 minutes presentation time.
We encourage submissions from scholars, educators, and students at all levels, and from disciplines including anthropology, communications, cultural studies, film studies, GLBT studies, history, literature, media studies, popular culture, sociology, and television studies. Selected papers will be published (with author’s permission) in a special anthology pertaining to the conference theme. As a bonus, please note that the conference dates correspond with the ideal time to enjoy New England’s breathtaking fall foliage!
Persons submitting individual-paper proposals are asked to submit a one-page abstract with complete contact information (name, institutional affiliation, snail-mail and e-mail addresses, daytime telephone number, fax number). Panel proposals (featuring three paper-presentations total) should include panel title, brief description of panel theme, name of the panel chair, one-page abstracts of each paper in the panel, and complete contact information for each presenter on the panel (name, institutional affiliation, snail-mail and e-mail addresses, daytime telephone number, fax number). In order to be considered, all proposals must be received no later than July 1, 2004. Individuals will be notified of the status of their proposals within three weeks of the submission deadline.
