Call for Responses
FLOW Conference 2010
September 30-October 2, 2010
The University of Texas at Austin
Deadline for 150-word abstracts: June 11, 2010
Flow Conference 2010 is the 3rd biannual conference for FlowTV.org, a University of Texas at Austin graduate student-run, online academic journal focusing on television and media culture.
Flow Conference 2010 will resemble traditional academic meetings in name only: There will be no panels, no papers, and no plenary sessions. Instead, the event will feature a series of roundtables, each organized around a compelling question. Respondents are asked to submit a 150-word abstract addressing one of the roundtable questions as listed on our conference Web site: http://flowtv.org/conference
Some roundtable topics include:
Global Television Flows
Virtual World Building
Postfeminist Media Culture
Race and Representation
Twitter and Celebrity
The State of the American Sitcom
TV and the Question of a "Mass Audience"
HBO & History
Comics Across Media
Serialization and Viewership
Media Policy and Scholarship
Online Publishing and Criticism
Song, Sound, and Remix
Visit the conference Web site for a complete list of roundtable questions in full detail.
We especially encourage responses that address issues of race, class, gender, sexuality, age, and ability, as well as international perspectives.
Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with a 150-word abstract and the title of the roundtable you are responding to in the subject of the email by June 11, 2010. Please respond to only one roundtable topic. Include your full name, e-mail address, and affiliation in your e-mail.
We will inform participants of acceptance via e-mail by June 28, 2010.
Upon acceptance, respondents will be asked to expand their abstract to a 600-800 word position paper, due by August 20, 2010.
In an effort to include a wide range of participants (i.e., scholars, fans, critics, activists, policymakers, industry professionals, etc.), we encourage wide distribution of this call.
