I am seeking proposals for the following panel to be held at the SCMS conference in Vancouver, March 2006:
Screen Shops: Shopping Channels, Department Store Cinema, and Point-of-Purchase TV
This panel seeks papers exploring links between film, television and shopping. Particular emphasis is placed on proposals addressing use of screen technologies at the point-of-purchase or to promote direct ordering. Papers on topics such as shopping channels (QVC, HSN, etc.), film/TV in department stores, popcorn promos in theater trailers, infomercials, and interactive television are welcome.
Please send 200-300 word proposals to Stephen Groening (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 8, 2005.
