FILM AND MEDIA 2011: The First Annual London Film and Media Conference - Call for Papers
Papers are now being accepted from around the world for FILM AND MEDIA 2011: The First Annual London Film and Media Conference, which will hold its inaugural event on 12-14 July 2011 at the Institute of Education, University of London. This event runs in parallel with LONDONICITY 2011: The First Annual London Studies Conference. A single registration admits to both events.
The main focus of FILM AND MEDIA 2011 is on the screen-based traditions of Film, TV and Digital Media. The particular agenda for the Inaugural Conference in 2011 will be determined by the particular interests of its first annual cohort of contributors. It is anticipated that Papers will address many of the following topics, but the list is by no means exclusive:
National cinemas; film history; film economics; independent cinema; the archive; distribution and exhibition; authorship and production; film theory; spectatorship; narrativity; social representation; A-V communication; TV, commerce and public service; the role of advertising; TV and popular culture; the politics of TV; TV and the State; TV realities; TV fictions; media audiences; media identities: nation, race, class, age, gender; media ethics; regulation; censorship; social media; children and family media; media literacy; convergence; cybergeography; practices of new media; the digital imaginary; virtuality and its discontents; knowledge, learning and education in the digital era.
