CfP: 2011 meeting of the Society for Cinema and Media Studies, New Orleans

The Society for Cinema and Media Studies announces its call for proposals for the 2011 Conference in New Orleans, to be held March 10-13th at the historic Ritz Carlton Hotel on the edge of the French Quarter. New Orleans boasts several universities, a burgeoning film and television industry and historic theaters, and it is home to a
number of community media groups. It is renowned for its music, food, charm, generosity, and cosmopolitanism. Laissez les bons temps rouler!!! In honor of the resilient spirit of our host city, this year’s conference theme will be “Media Citizenship.” We are interested in work that explores how changes in all forms of media, both new and old, have had an enormous impact on the conditions of equality,
citizenship, and survival in the United States and around the world. Considerations of the constraints, conditions, and possibilities that subtend media citizenship on radio, television, film, and digital media are encouraged, as are analyses of how citizenship does or does not differ for individuals, communities, and corporations. Panels, papers, and workshops on these and related topics will be given special consideration. We also welcome papers, panels and workshop proposals on other topics of interest to cinema and media studies scholars.

The New Orleans conference submission deadline for all proposals for open call papers, pre-constituted panels, pre-constituted workshops and screenings is Wednesday September 1, 2010 (5:00 pm CST). Details as to how to propose a paper, panel, workshop or film for the screening program online through the new website will be available in June. Please stay tuned to the current website for updates and watch
for our e-mails. Online applications for SCMS travel grants and conference fee waivers will be available in December for students and un- and under-employed members who have submitted successful proposals. Some of these grants are awarded to encourage conference participation among students from under-represented groups.
