CFP: Contracampo - Brazilian Journal of Communication



Contracampo - Brazilian Journal of Communication, a publication of the Graduate Programme in Communication (PPGCOM) of Fluminense Federal University (UFF),

Call for papers for the special issue "Geography of Time: Narratives and Temporalities of the Global South" with guest editors Fernando Resende (UFF) and Sebastian Thies (Tübingen University).

Articles can be written in Portuguese or English and should be submitted by 31 August.
In this special issue, Contracampo focuses attention on images, media, communication processes and literature, and how they allow us to critically reflect upon complex time regimes and their impact on society. How do they unveil power structures of temporality in the South and indicate cultural and political locations from where resistance against globalized time regimes arise? How do subjects deal with temporal shifts and transitions of multitemporal heterogeneity in everyday life? How is memory and historicity articulated in this context and how do autochthonous concepts of time offer resilience against these dynamics? Despite the centrality of the discussion around the idea of temporalities, articles that address other issues related to the Global South from the perspective of communication can also be submitted to the special issue.

The full call for papers is available at https://goo.gl/oMidXs

FOCUS AND THEMES

PhD workshop is aimed at researchers who work on topics related to themes analyzed both in the Seminar and in the Congress, which are discussed below:

INTERNATIONAL SEMINAR - GLOBAL EMERGENCY OF

COMMERCIAL TELEVISION AND PUBLIC SERVICE CHALLENGES IN EUROPE

During the last two decades of the last century, private and commercial television were deployed and developed in many European countries. Although there had been pioneering experiences almost since World War II, it is then when the development of new technologies and the extension of a post-industrial consumer society popularize the phenomenon.

New actors will modify the production systems, but also the forms of consumption and the relationship of the viewers with the audiovisual texts. Also, if transnational globalization is one of the defining processes of the period, the presence of international operators will force the redefinition of theoretical frameworks for television, which will no longer be considered an essentially national phenomenon. Therefore, the media landscape will be ruled by national legislation and, in addition, by a supranational jurisprudence from the European Economic Community. The best example of the new situation will be Television without Frontiers Directive passed in 1989.

The new situation will ask for a reflection and redefinition of both the concept of public service and the raison d'être and obligations of public television, often in direct conflict with its new competitors. New issues will arise, such as profitability, audience, or quality content.

International Seminar "Global Emergency of Commercial Television and Public Service Challenges in Europe" follows the lines stated in the research project "Cinema and television in Spain 1986-1995: modernity and emergence of global culture". In doing so, it proposes to study and reflect on how the implementation of private television in different countries has occurred and how it has conditioned the current television.

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE - DIGITAL IMAGINARIES OF THE SOUTH: STORIES OF BELONGING AND UPROOTING IN HISPANIC CINEMAS

Over the past twenty years, digital technology has become the standard in the film production, circulation, and consumption processes. Within this context, Hispanic cinemas have undergone deep changes, both within the countries with an established cinematic tradition, as well as in those that, due to several reasons, had not developed a robust cinematography throughout the 20th century. The analogue paradigm became deeply contested and a new digital framework, which was widely discussed by institutions, film critics, and academics, emerged. This moment coincides with the widespread generalization of national and transnational neoliberal policies that, far from backing diversity, have increased the gap between those “connected” and those “disconnected” (to draw upon Néstor García Canclini’s term); a gap also experienced by those that, even if connected, still occupy subaltern positions.

The speeding of these processes has resulted in an increase of mobility, at work both in the geographical displacement of film professionals and in the emergence of new narratives models that deal with questions of belonging and uprooting, springing precisely from these experiences of displacement. The cinemas of the Global South, and, most specifically, Hispanic cinemas, have actively taken part in these processes, ultimately playing a relevant role in terms of narrative and aesthetic models, and the production, circulation and consumption of film.

Following the main research axes of the R+D project “Transnational relations in Hispanic digital cinemas: the axes of Spain, Mexico, and Argentina” (CSO2014-52750- P), the International Conference Digital Imaginaries of the South: Stories of Belonging and Uprooting in Hispanic Cinemas welcomes proposals across the following lines of inquiry: representation of migrations, displacements, exile, and diaspora; reconfiguration of the regional, national, and transnational Hispanic interactions within the new century; Public discourses and film policies within the region; Hybridization and identity in the narratives on colonization, decolonization, and revolutionary processes; Activism and digital praxis; Film cultures and cinephilia: festivals, publications, and digital platforms; Historiographic, theoretical, and methodological problems of so-called Hispanic, Iberian, and Latin American cinemas americanos.

CFP: Feminist and Queer Perspectives on Sex in Contemporary Film and TV


Second CFP: Special Edition of /Mai: Journal of Feminism and Visual Culture/ – ‘Feminist and Queer Perspectives on Sex in Contemporary Film and TV’

The newly founded feminist and LGBTQIA+ journal /Mai /is seeking contributions to its special edition, which revolves around ‘Feminist and Queer Perspectives on Sex in Contemporary Film and TV’. /Mai /is a new journal founded and edited by Anna Backman Rogers (Senior Lecturer in Feminist Philosophy and Visual Culture, University of Gothenburg, Sweden) and is named after the Swedish feminist filmmaker Mai Zetterling. The journal aims to become the basis for an intersectional feminist and queer collective of scholars, writers, artists and activists. We are hoping for the edition to be published by March 2018, and we are also keen on receiving a range of papers, and other experimental pieces, which can be defined by contributors. Conventional or standard academic papers should be 5,000 – 6,000 words in length, although we will consider some shorter pieces of 3,000 words. Other pieces, such as interviews for instance, should aim to stick to this word limit too (5-6,000 words).

Please also note a couple of things. Firstly, this edition is centred on Feminist and Queer perspectives of sexual images and the representation of sex acts, not sex in the biological/physiological sense (but papers concerned with the relationship between anatomy and sex acts are obviously welcomed) . Secondly, for the sake of this edition, ‘contemporary’ can also be loosely defined by those who submit papers, but generally means media texts released in the last ten years.

Papers may centre on:

• How contemporary Film and TV is stylistically or narratively representing sex acts.
• What role sex plays within genre or narrative more broadly.
• How different film/TV cultures use or represent sex to tell a story or to further character development.
• The political ramifications of screening sex.
• Ethical considerations of screening sex.
• The connection between socio-cultural factors and industrial shifts in relation to screening sex.
• Sex acts in relation to masculinity and femininity.
• Audiences and watching sexual images.
• ‘Alternative’ representations of sex in Film and TV and the importance of these sexual images.
• ‘Queer Sex’
• BDSM, Kink and ‘Othering’ the sex act.
• Heteronormative, hetero-centric or homonormative representations of sex.
• How the history of sex on-screen has affected present depictions.
• The relationship between pornography and sex in mainstream film/TV.
• The relationship between sex in cinema and sex on TV.

Abstracts should be 200 – 250 words, and should also include a 100 word bio. The deadline for abstracts has been extended and is now the 14th August 2017, with successful contributors being contacted by 31st August 2017. A copy of the paper should be sent to the editors by January 15th 2018, to then be peer-reviewed and edited.
Please email abstracts to: Connor.Winterton@mail.bcu.ac.uk (guest editor) and please feel free to get in touch with any informal enquiries, either to me or Anna Backman Rogers: Anna.Backman.Rogers@gu.se

Call for chapters: Cinema of Crisis

Cinema of Crisis: Film and Contemporary Europe

Now more than ever, the idea of Europe as grounded in a shared cultural heritage cannot be taken for granted. For all its diversity, complexity and internal tensions, Europe remains a powerful economic and political superstate. But it is one in crisis, where the postwar social democratic consensus has collapsed, the failings of neoliberalism have led to widespread austerity, and extremism, xenophobia and racism are on the rise.

This collection of original essays will consider filmmakers’ engagements with pressing issues of the moment via popular genres, documentary, art cinema, experimental film, intermedia work and gallery installations.

We invite contributions that focus on creative responses to topics such as:

Political upheaval (politics as morality; ‘de-democratisation’; the rise of nativist, nationalist, and racist groupings; failures of the centre left; reinventing politics and the return of the left; Brexit and its ramifications; Trump and Europe)

Economics (austerity and its affects;labour conditions and the ‘gig economy’; precarity; class, gender and inequality under neoliberalism; the continued hollowing out of manufacturing; privatisation and the erosion of the welfare state; automation anxiety)

Society (inequality; the scapegoating of immigrants and the poor; zoning and social exclusion; polarisation along generational / regional / ethnic / gender / cultural and class lines; Fortress Europe and the migrant / refugee ‘crisis’; environmental pressures; post-war history, memorialisation and memory disputes; security threats and discourses (states of emergency; fear, insecurity, surveillance; cyber attacks; terrorism etc)

Please send 300 word proposals to both Thomas Austin and Angelos Koutsourakis by November 30, 2017.

CFP: Researching Past Cinema Audiences (UK)

Researching Past Cinema Audiences: Archives, Memories and Methods

Monday 26^th - Wednesday 28^th March 2018, Aberystwyth University, UK

In collaboration with:

Media Industries and Institutions Research Cluster, Department of Theatre, Film and Television Studies, Aberystwyth University

Centre for Media History, Aberystwyth University

Keynote Speakers:

Professor Sue Harper, Portsmouth University, UK

Professor Daniel Biltereyst, Ghent University, Belgium

Since Allen and Gomery’s (1985) call for a revision of existing approaches, the emergence and rise in prominence of the New Film History tradition has irrevocably changed what it is to be a film historian. No longer solely concerned with film aesthetics or viewing cinema as a ‘reflection’ of society (Chapman, Glancy and Harper, 2007: 2–3), films themselves are now not necessarily the chief focus of a historical investigation of cinema. Indeed, over the past twenty years there has been a notable shift towards the study of all kinds of past film exhibition spaces (both public and private) and the tastes, responses and habits of the audiences who frequented them. This is illustrated by the growing number of publications, networks and research projects on past cinema audiences which cross and connect the disciplines of film and media studies, cultural and leisure studies, and history and cultural geography.With this shift towards researching spaces of exhibition and their audiences, film historians have met the call to look beyond traditional film history methodologies and incorporate the use of a wide range of sources, from archival, industry and reception sources, to audience memories elicited through interviews or questionnaires.

This conference offers a platform for both established and emerging scholars who share this desire to research past cinema audiences – prior to 2000 – through a wide range of investigative foci. The conference will allow for the showcasing and sharing of current research and, consequently, for the consideration of current and future directions and debates within the field. We welcome proposals for twenty minute papers, as well as for poster presentations, the latter of which may be ideal for masters or first year PhD students. Please send paper proposals (of 250 words maximum) to Jamie Terrill and Kate Egan at hcastaff@aber.ac.uk <mailto:hcastaff@aber.ac.uk> by Friday 1^st December 2017. Panel proposals (of 3 or 4 speakers) are also welcome; please include a brief panel introduction (of 150 words maximum) with paper proposals in these cases.

Paper and panel topics may include (but are not limited to):

·Past audiences for cinemas in particular cities, towns or villages (rural, seaside, etc.)

·Past audiences for cinemas in particular eras or decades

·Past cinema audience responses and experiences in relation to gender, class, nationality, age, race or sexuality

·Audience responses to – or recollections of – past film controversies (local, national or international)

·Changing audience tastes, including in relation to particular stars, genres or modes (documentary, experimental, avant-garde, underground, cult cinema)

·Audiences for past forms of home media (Super 8, analogue video, laserdisc)

·Considerations of particular archives, sources or methods for researching the habits or experiences of past audiences

·Audience responses to past technological developments (in relation to sound, colour, widescreen, 3D, etc.)

·Audience habits or experiences associated with particular kinds of cinema or forms of exhibition (picture palaces, art cinemas, fleapits, grindhouse cinemas, multiplexes, drive-ins, midnight movies and cult screenings, matinee screenings, film societies and clubs)

CFP: Doing Women's Film and Television History IV


Doing Women's Film and Television History IV:
Calling the Shots – Then, Now, and Next

University of Southampton, May 23 – 25, 2018
Organising team: Shelley Cobb, Linda Ruth Williams, and Natalie Wreyford


As researchers of the AHRC-funded project Calling the Shots: Women and Contemporary UK Film Culture 2000-2015 we are proud to host the fourth International Doing Women's Film and Television History conference in association with the Women’s Film and Television History Network – UK/Ireland.

The focus for DWFTH-IV is predicated on the idea of the contemporary as an historical formation. The conference will offer a space to think about the interconnectedness of the past, present and future in feminist historiography and theory, as well as across all forms of women’s film culture and filmmaking. It will also consider women’s film and television histories and their relationships with the contemporary, framed and read historically, to reflect on our methodological, theoretical, ideological and disciplinary choices when researching and studying women and/in film and television. In addition to this theme, we are interested in proposals/panels on all topics related to women’s film and television history, from all eras and from all parts of the globe. We hope that DWFTH-IV will build on the successes of the previous conferences through new work on women, both historical and contemporary, and fresh thinking on what we mean by women’s film and television history.

Calling the Shots is producing important new research on women in cinema now, through interviews, data analysis and writing. We are finding and recording all the women who have been employed in six key roles in British film production since 2003. We are interviewing over 50 of these women thereby producing a record of their involvement and achievements. The scale and forensic detail of the project shows both what they have done and where they have been excluded. Since its inception, Calling the Shots has been affiliated with WFTHN-UK/Ireland, and in doing our research we continually reflect on how contemporary study both relies on historical precedents and develops new models for thinking and working historically, while being focused on the present.


Keynote speakers TBC
(The conference will include screenings with special guests, as well as sessions with film and television practitioners and other industry professionals.)


Papers are invited on any aspect of women’s work in, consumption of, and relationship with film and television. The following is an indicative (and by no means exhaustive) list of possible topics:




· women’s film/TV historiography: filling gaps or changing history?

· history formulated as in medias res: how do we do contemporary history, and what are the implications of thinking of the historical in this way?

· methodologies: archive searches, data collection (uses, limitations, difficulties collecting); interviews with practitioners; creative/cultural industrial approaches

· the impact of social, economic and industrial conditions (including industry regulation) on women’s roles and creative practices

· new ways of doing textual analysis of women’s films (rethinking feminist theory?)

· re-thinking women as ‘auteurs’ of film and television (directors, showrunners, producers, actors)

· feminism & women’s film history; historicizing women’s film collectives of 1970s and 80s; feminist filmmaking today (and tomorrow?)

· international and transnational contexts: connections, comparisons, collaborations, migration

· crossing industry boundaries: film, television, theatre, radio, journalism, art, etc

· practice-based research: directing, screenwriting, sound/set/costume design, etc

- the relationship between practice-based research and history

· women audiences/viewers and women as fans

· women campaigner/activists in film and television and for on-screen/off-screen change

· women’s film criticism/women film critics

· the uses of social media by women filmmakers/showrunners/actors/critics/fans/campaigners etc

· digitisation in women’s filmmaking and future histories

· ‘women’s cinema’ as critical category in post-feminist contexts

· women’s independent filmmaking and/versus women’s mainstream (or blockbuster) directing

· changing the curriculum: critical canons, teaching & film programming; pedagogies of women’s film and television history; teaching feminist history and theory; including women’s film and television in core modules/classes

· the relationship between film and television genres, their gendered affiliations and women’s involvement in their production

· women practitioners’ negotiations of femininity and/or feminism in their working lives

· the intersection of class, race, sexuality, disability and women both on screen and behind the camera

· issues of archiving and preservation for women’s film and television

· distribution and exhibition and broadcasting – finding and seeing women’s film and television



Proposals for twenty-minute presentations must include the title of the presentation, a 250-word abstract and a brief biography the author(s). Pre-constituted panels of three speakers may also be submitted, and should include a 250-word panel rationale statement, as well as individual abstracts. Proposals from both established scholars and early career researchers including postgraduate students are welcomed. Proposals should be submitted to dwfth4@gmail.com before the 3 November 2017. Participants will receive a response from the selection committee before 20 December 2017.

Invitation to submit book proposals to New Studies in European Cinema


Peter Lang Oxford is pleased to announce the re-launch of the series /New Studies in European Cinema /under new editorship:

New Studies in European Cinema <https://www.peterlang.com/view/serial/NSEC>

www.peterlang.com/view/serial/NSEC <http://www.peterlang.com/view/serial/NSEC>

Series Editors

Wendy Everett (University of Bath) and Fiona Handyside (University of Exeter)

With its focus on new critical, theoretical, and cultural developments in contemporary film studies, this series encourages lively analytical debate within an innovative, multidisciplinary, and transnational approach to European cinema. It aims to create an expansive sense of where the borders of European cinema may lie and to explore its interactions and exchanges within and between regional and national spaces, taking into account diverse audiences and institutions. The series reflects the range and depth of European cinema, while also attempting to revise and extend its importance within the development of cinema studies in the coming decades. Of particular interest is how European cinema may respond to the challenges of digital distribution and the new intermedial landscape, evolving issues in transnational funding and production, the significance of film festival culture, and questions of multivocality and pluralism at a time of global crisis. The impact of all such developments upon European culture and identity will be of fundamental interest in the coming decades and the /New Studies in European Cinema/ series makes a key contribution to this debate.

Proposals for monographs and edited collections are welcome. All proposals and manuscripts undergo a rigorous peer review assessment prior to publication.

CFP: The 11th International Conference and Festival on Global Cult Film Traditions
The 11th International Conference and Festival on Global Cult Film Traditions

Birmingham City University Presents:

Cine Excess XI
Fear and the Unfamiliar: Wrong Time, Wrong Place, Wrong Crowd Birmingham City University (and related screening venues)
9th-11th November 2017
www.cine-excess.co.uk


Over the last 11 years, the Cine-Excess International Film Conference and Festival has brought together leading scholars and critics with global cult filmmakers for an event comprising a themed academic conference with plenary talks, filmmaker interviews and UK theatrical premieres of up and coming film releases.

Previous guests of honour attending Cine-Excess have included Catherine Breillat (Romance, Sex is Comedy), John Landis (An American Werewolf in London, The Blues Brothers), Roger Corman (The Masque of the Red Death, The Wild Angels), Stuart Gordon (Re-Animator, King of the Ants), Brian Yuzna (Society, The Dentist), Dario Argento (Deep Red, Suspiria), Joe Dante (The Howling, Gremlins), Franco Nero (Django, Keoma, Die Hard II), Vanessa Redgrave (Blow Up, The Devils), Ruggero Deodato (Cannibal Holocaust, House on the Edge of the Park), Enzo G. Castellari (Keoma, The Inglorious Bast***s), Sergio Martino (Torso, All the Colours of the Dark), Jeff Lieberman (Squirm, Blue Sunshine), Pat Mills (Action Magazine, 2000 AD) and Jake West (Evil Aliens, Dog House).

Cine-Excess XI is hosted by the Birmingham School of Media at Birmingham City University, and will feature a three day academic conference alongside filmmaking guests, industry panels and a season of related UK premieres and retrospectives taking place at screening venues across the region.
For its 11th annual addition, the conference Fear and the Unfamiliar: Wrong Time, Wrong Place, Wrong Crowd considers the ways in which cult media exploits the boundaries of self and other in order to address horror and unease across a range of key genres. Specifically, it revisits and reconsiders Robin Wood’s (1986) taxonomy of otherness, which positioned categories such as women, the working class, ethnicity, alternative ideologies, and deviations from the ideological sexual norm as triggers for the evolution of the horror film and related transgressive genres.
Although Wood’s original return of the repressed hypothesis generated a range of critical readings around disreputable film genres, the parameters of his analysis have become invested with new and politicised resonances in recent years. Here, acts of extremism, and the making strange of the familiar in the contemporary milieu of Trump’s travel ban, a proposed wall to separate Mexico from the US, and generalised calls for greater immigration control all serve to resituate ‘other people’, ‘other cultures’ and ‘other places’ as sources of fear and revulsion. In short, awareness of individual, national and international difference has once more become culturally and politically foregrounded as threatening, thereby situating the other as being at the axes of Wrong Time, Wrong Place, Wrong Crowd.

Cine-Excess XI invites papers that either look back to Wood’s original premise, or assess more contemporaneous works/influences to consider such boundary awareness through the articulation of the other in cult media, film and television. This might involve the making strange of the familiar person/self, either in appearance or behaviour, perhaps through the mirror image or the doppelganger, or the rendering of places and spaces as uncanny, different or ideologically/physically remote, such as in the Gothic ruin, the rural backwater, or the isolated cabin in the woods. Proposals might also examine how shifts in time likewise cause ordinary contemporary on-screen places to become peculiar, excessive and cult.

Proposals are now invited for papers on a wide range of cult media case-studies, including film, television, literature, comics and digital media. However, we would particularly welcome contributions focusing on:

• Legacy of the living dead – Social realism and apocalyptic satire in the cinema of George A. Romero
• Cabins, cannibals and chainsaws – The transgressive other of US cult cinema
• Migrant trauma – Fears of the immigrant in classical and contemporary media 
• Bloody kids – Infants and infantile fears in cult media traditions • The return of the repressed redux – New readings of the concept of the other
• The savage lens – Colonial visions of the unfamiliar 
• The gothic other – Terrors old and new 
• Wicker men and stone children – British tradition, folklore and cross-generational conflicts in UK cult film cultures
• “Colonised by bourgeois ideology” – Robin Wood and the fear of the working class 
• Picket fences and domestic perversions – Unwholesome portrayals of the nuclear family in cult film and television
• Invasion USA – Alternative ideologies and fears of national infiltration
• Deadlier than the male – Case-studies of the transgressive female on screen 
• Film and the unfamiliar – Global visions, transnational variants and genres out of place 
• Don’t go into the woods tonight – Urban fears in cinema’s forgotten rural spaces 
• Lost boys and girls – Gang culture tropes across cult film and TV 
• Cult on cults – Representations of religious and political extremists 
• Sexuality and the unfamiliar – Queer bodies and threats to heteronormativity 
• The other within – Outcasts , radicals and vengeful veterans
• Fear of the once familiar – Mainstream icons reborn as cult performers 
• The Cultification of the Uncanny – Theoretical perspectives on the concept of the unfamiliar
• Fear of the all too familiar – Doubles and doppelgangers in cult film and TV

Call for chapter proposals - 'Different Bodies: Disability and the Media'


Book edited by Diana Garrisi and Jacob Johanssen (Communication and Media Research Institute, University of Westminster).


Following on from the conference ‘Different Bodies: (Self-) Representation, Disability and the Media’ which was held at the University of Westminster in June, we are preparing a book proposal based on some of the themes arising from the conference. The book proposal will be submitted to Peter Lang, who have already expressed a strong interest in the project.


The collection is intended to offer a comprehensive view of the relationship between disability and the media from a global and multidisciplinary perspective. Building upon existing studies, the book aims to explore if and how the rapidly changing technological means of communication are affecting how the body as strange, shameful, wrong, impaired, wounded, scarred, disabled, lacking, different or ‘other’ is constructed in the media. In particular the book aims to discuss whether the Internet has made it possible to develop new, alternative or more inclusive narratives that challenge long-established mainstream coverage of disability. Some of the questions we would like to address are, for example, whether self-representations of disability on the Internet are contesting or aligning with representations on mainstream media outlets. We would also like to look at issues such as the rise of disability hate crimes online, the relationship between journalism and disability awareness campaigns, online dating and disability, the media coverage of disability rights and employment.

Possible themes include but are not limited to:

* Affective labour of bodies
* Auto-ethnographic accounts of the body in / through digital media
* Celebrity bodies and the spectacles of transformation
* Cinema and disability
* Contemporary coverage of disability in print/online/television/radio
* De-colonizing and de-westernising the mediated body
* Disability and advertising
* Disability and race
* Disability and the media: historical perspectives
* (Dis)Empowerments of the disabled body
* Journalism and practices of othering the body
* Neoliberalism, policy and austerity politics
* Posthumanist and non-representational frameworks
* Reality television and the body
* Representing wounds and scars
* Researching bodies and the media: frameworks and methodologies
* Stigma and the body
* The abject body
* The body and trauma
* The mediated body as spectacle
* The medicalised body in the media
* The objectification of the disabled body in the media

We invite submissions of 200-250 words chapter proposals. Deadline: 30 September 2017.

Submissions should also include:


a) Title of chapter

b) Author name/s, institutional details

c) Corresponding author’s email address

d) Keywords (no more than 5)

e) A short bio


Commissioned chapters will be around 5,000 words. The fact that an abstract is accepted does not guarantee publication of the final manuscript. If the book proposal is approved, all chapters submitted will be judged on the basis of a double-blind reviewing process.

We look forward to your submissions.


Should you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at

CFP: Transmedia UK - Bath Spa University


Transmedia UK: Sector by Sector

Media Convergence Research Centre and Centre for Culture and Creative Industries
Bath Spa University, Corsham Court Campus

One-Day Academic-Industry Workshop: Friday 24th November 2017

Confirmed Industry Speakers:
Alison Norrington, Creative Director at StoryCentral Ltd.

Lana Beckwith, Senior Content Development Manager at HarperCollins
Nataly Rios Goico, Creative Consultant at Conducttr
Kate Fitzpatrick, Senior Strategist at e3 Media
Tim Kindberg, CEO at Matter 2 Media Ltd.


Audiences now engage with media across multiple platforms, following the fictions of films and books across social media and video games, exploring brand universes and publishing enterprises across television, comics, websites, apps, etc. The transmedia phenomenon is now a defining strategy across the media industries for generating multiple revenue streams and for building closer relationships between content, brands and audiences. But when looking across online gaming, publishing, mobile media and digital marketing, which transmedia practices really make up the UK's multiplatform landscape?

It can be claimed that the creative strategies used for producing content across multiple platforms are typically characterised by the sector in which they operate - conceptualised as ‘storytelling’ in film and television, as 'content marketing' in advertising, as ‘engagement’ in publishing, for example. These sector-specific understandings limit the innovative potential for stories, worlds and brands to be crafted as transmedia entities for the digital age.

Transmedia UK: Sector by Sector tackles this problem by beginning to map the ways in which different UK media sectors are now responding to ideas, concepts and pressures of transmediality. This academic-industry workshop aims to identify the strategies and principles that now make up the transmedia practices in and across online gaming, publishing, mobile media, digital marketing and beyond, examining which practices operate across these various sectors while exploring what it means to distinguish between storytelling, publishing, interactivity and marketing in today's transmedia environment.

Exemplifying current approaches to transmediality in their respective sectors of online gaming, publishing, mobile media and digital marketing - as well as in sector-spanning transmedia consultancy contexts - the organisations involved in the workshop comprise:

* Conducttr <http://www.conducttr.com/>, a world-renowned audience engagement platform that integrates storytelling with gaming automation to build immersive, online and personalised gaming experiences for its users;
* HarperCollins <https://www.harpercollins.co.uk/>, one of the world’s foremost book publishers with a catalogue ranging from fiction to apps;
* e3 Media <https://www.e3.co.uk/>, one of the UK’s most awarded independent digital marketing agencies, providing creative solutions to real-world business problems;
* Matter 2 Media Ltd. <http://matter2media.com>, helping technologies grow to solve business problems and create experiences for users via mobile apps and social video;
* StoryCentral Ltd. <http://www.storycentral.com/>, which works globally with such companies as Walt Disney Imagineering, SundanceTV/AMC Networks, FOX International and Penguin to incubate
new franchises, participatory experiences, story architecture and audience engagement strategies.

This academic-industry workshop will feature presentations from staff representatives from all of these five industry partners, who will each discuss exactly what 'transmedia' or 'multiplatform' now means in their own sector-context.

We also invite proposals from researchers, postgraduate students and creative practitioners for short presentations that engage with the wider theme of 'Transmedia UK' from an academic perspective. Proposal topics may address, but are not limited to:

* Sector-specific approaches to transmediality (e.g. transmedia gaming, transmedia marketing, etc.)
* Understandings of 'creativity' and 'commerce' in the UK transmedia landscape
* Definitions of 'engagement' and 'interactivity' in the UK transmedia landscape
* Emerging transmedial convergences between online and offline media platforms
* Implications for cultural policy and copyright in the UK transmedia landscape

Please send proposals (300 words approx.) for 15 minute presentations along with a short biography to Matthew Freeman (m.freeman@bathspa.ac.uk<mailto:m.freeman@bathspa.ac.uk>) and Charlie Tweed (c.tweed@bathspa.ac.uk <mailto:c.tweed@bathspa.ac.uk>) by no later than Friday 22nd September 2017.

CFP: Special Issue of Science Fiction Film and Television on the female astronaut on screen



Special Issue of /Science Fiction Film and Television
Guest Editors: Lorrie Palmer and Lisa Purse

“When the Astronaut is a Woman: Beyond the Frontier in Film and Television”

With the release of /Hidden Figures/ (Melfi, 2016), public perception of the iconic era of the space race was reconfigured. The central image of the white male astronaut was replaced by one in which women of color dominated mathematics, science, and technology, thereby prompting a new cultural conversation. Indeed, this narrative of science fact signals another significant re-embodiment in our science fictions: the female astronaut.

Spaceflight and the astronauts who embark on mythic journeys of exploration have long been in the shadow of the macho military test pilots of the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo missions. These men evoke nostalgia through their Right Stuff swagger, their personae as space race Cold Warriors, and as a collective Kennedy-esque metaphor for the American frontier. In the postwar decades of space travel, “the body of the astronaut [was] increasingly used as a projection screen for anxieties concerning the stability of gender categories” (Brandt 2006), so it is significant that recent iterations are moving beyond the traditional white male astronaut. We see this in the diversification of representations of space travelers in television and fiction film, particularly along the lines of gender, race and sexuality, as corporations race to Mars with crowd-sourced crews, and entertainment media revise cultural narratives about space exploration.

This special issue of /Science Fiction Film and Television/,therefore, seeks to integrate this contemporary moment of challenge to the hegemonic imagery of space travel by examining the genre’s aesthetic and representational characteristics and their relation to wider cultural discourses around gender, race, technology and ecology, and to theoretical debates about the body, technoscience and the post-human.

Along these lines, contributors may wish to re-evaluate depictions of female astronauts in films like /Contact/ (1997), /Solaris/ (2002),/Event Horizon/ (1997), or /Supernova/ (2000), or to map more contemporary representational trends in films such as /Interstellar/ (2014), /The Martian/ (2015), the /Star Wars/ or/Star Trek/ reboots, or Ripley’s legacy in the recent installments of the /Aliens/ franchise. Television series like /Dark Matter/ (2015-), /Ascension/ (2014), /The Expanse/ (2015-), or the new /Star/ /Trek: Discovery/ (2017-) would be of particular interest to this special issue. At the heart of these texts are female astronaut-protagonists who must negotiate their relationship to the legacy of existing depictions of space exploration, while also speaking to their contemporary context. Ultimately then, we ask how the reconfiguration of space race history—now made visible in /Hidden Figures/—broadens the frontier of science fiction scholarship.

Please send proposals by 30 September 2017 to Lorrie Palmer, lpalmer@towson.edu <mailto:lpalmer@towson.edu> and to Lisa Purse, l.v.purse@reading.ac.uk <mailto:l.v.purse@reading.ac.uk> with an author’s bio and a short (5-7 entries) bibliography.

Since the late nineteenth century the print photograph in the media stood as a powerful tool for denouncing social injustice and claiming better life conditions – i.e. as seen in the work of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine, or Joshua Benoliel, as many others. In the early decades of the twentieth century the use of images had a significant boost with film, when directors such as Flaherty, Eisenstein, John Grierson, Vertov, Dvorjenko or Jivens, combining documental intentions with avant-garde experimental claims, made possible to discuss political and historical conditions.

The aim of the conference is to discuss and debate photographs and film as a social tool from a leftist stance. In particular, to examine and explore the relation of documentary practices and political commitment in different historical circumstances throughout the twentieth and the twenty first centuries.

CFP: Confronting the Narratives of the Anthropocene (Nov 23-24, 2017; Tampere, Finland)



Narrare: Centre for Interdisciplinary Narrative Studies at the University of Tampere will host a two-day symposium “Confronting the Narratives of the Anthropocene” November 23-24, 2017. The deadline for abstracts is October 6, 2017.


Invited speakers: Axel Goodbody (University of Bath) and Brian McAllister (Ohio University).



Since its coining in 2000 by Paul Crutzen and Eugene Stoermer, the concept of the Anthropocene has become a common buzzword in various disciplines, including the natural and social sciences as well as environmental humanities. Even though the International Commission on Stratigraphy is still debating the status of the Anthropocene as an official geological epoch, the term itself is now commonly used to reflect the planetary impact of collective human activity. In the discourse of the Anthropocene, the entire human species is situated as a geological force capable of inducing massive changes upon the biosphere of the planet.

In the humanities and social sciences, the recent introduction of a new planetary epoch has been typically approached as a narrative problem. For many scholars, the Anthropocene represents a new grand narrative where the abstract category of “humanity” is portrayed as a universal agent uniformly responsible for the Earth’s new geological regime. For others, it indicates a convergence of human and natural histories and suggests a new kind of entangled relationship between human and non-human agencies. From a narratological point of view, the Anthropocene also presents a crisis of scale: it demands a multifocal perspective on human actions as well as planetary ecology. The stories of the Anthropocene do not concern human beings alone, but the entire Earth and its inhabitants.

In this interdisciplinary symposium on narratives of the Anthropocene, we ask: What are the narratives of planetary-scale environmental change? What is the role of fictional and factual narratives in tackling the complex natural-cultural issues of the proposed geological epoch? In the age of the Anthropocene, whose story should “we” be telling, how, and to what purpose?

We invite papers dealing with topics such as:
– Grand narratives of the Anthropocene
– Representations of the Anthropocene in narrative fiction; climate fiction
– Narrative form, genre, and the Anthropocene
– Anthropogenic apocalyptic narratives, dystopias, and utopias
– Environmental risk narratives
– Human and non-human agency in the narratives of the Anthropocene
– Narrative sense-making and the Anthropocene; unnarratable aspects of planetary-scale environmental change

Please send a 300-word abstract for a 20-minute paper to juha.raipola@uta.fi no later than October 6, 2017. Also include your affiliation, e-mail, and a 100-word bio. We will notify you of acceptance on October 13, 2017.

Further information will be posted on Narrare’s website:

CFP: Colóquio Narrativa Média e Cognição - 2017


Colóquio Narrativa, Média e Cognição


Debater e aprofundar modos de pensar e de construir narrativas é o propósito primordial do colóquio, com especial enfoque na componente cognitiva implicada na construção e correspondente vivência dessas narrativas.

Apresentação e Call


Se a narrativa e a sua construção tem sido um tema que a última década dotou de particular visibilidade, o modo como essa construção se interliga com os media e a tecno-mediação, gerando uma cada vez maior hibridização de géneros e formatos, bem como inegáveis implicações cognitivas tanto na perspectiva da criação como da recepção, são motivos mais que suficientes para justificar a continuada pertinência deste colóquio. Este é o 4º encontro - depois de se ter iniciado na Universidade do Minho em 2014, passado pela Universidade Católica Portuguesa em 2015 e pela Universidade do Porto em 2016, este ano cabe à Universidade da Beira Interior a oportunidade de promover uma reflexão e discussão conjuntas em torno deste tema tão claramente polifacético.
Entre os seus objectivos, estará também realçar a relação fenomenológica, perceptiva e emocional que, na contemporaneidade, tão claramente detectamos na estrutura narrativa dos conteúdos, respectiva formatação e transmissão mediática e mediada. Esta análise e questionamento tornam-se prementes num universo cuja progressiva predisposição para a introdução de mecanismos de gamificação, misturando e nivelando facto e ficção, não só modela a recepção, como promove uma potencial consciência distópica por parte de públicos e audiências em relação aos conteúdos veiculados, em detrimento da credibilidade e legitimidade que, no passado, foi condição desses formatos narrativos e dos meios a que estavam e estão associados.

Nesse sentido, a Organização convida à submissão de propostas de comunicação originais cujo enquadramento temático possa partir de perspectivas tão diversas como:
• Narrativa e Comunicação;
• Narrativa no cinema, videojogos, arte interativa, intermedia e transmedia;
• Estudos de narratologia (poéticas, correntes, estilos, géneros, modelos narratológicos);
• Elementos e mecanismos narratológicos (premissa, conflito, ações, personagens, relações entre personagens, tempo, espaço...);
• Novas poéticas e estruturas narrativas (modelos não-lineares e multilineares, hibridismo);
• Papel da narrativa na cognição e na organização do conhecimento;
• Narrativas históricas, sociais e políticas (análise dos mitos, métodos historiográficos, discursos da identidade coletiva e da alteridade, utopias e distopias sociais, etc.);
• Lugar da narrativa na estética e teoria da arte;
• Espaços diegéticos;
• Ontologia da narrativa;
• Papel do criador e do espectador/recetor/utilizador;
• Narrativa e emoção;
• Desenvolvimento da narrativa (criatividade e aplicação de modelos narratológicos);
• Outras que contribuam de forma clara e argumentada para a relevância e contexto do debate pretendido.

CFP: Narrative and Wellbeing (Oct 19-20, 2017; Tampere, Finland)


Narrare: Centre for Interdisciplinary Narrative Studies at the University of Tampere will host a two-day conference “Narrative and Wellbeing” October 19-20, 2017.

Invited speakers

Cindie Aaen Maagaard (University of Southern Denmark)

Maura Spiegel (Columbia University).

Call for Papers

The conference will consider the various ways in which narratives can be used to promote wellbeing. Narrative is a strategy for making sense of the unexpected. It allows people to respond intelligently and creatively to life events such as a sudden illness and it may help them come to terms with a long-term condition. Narrative theory has also begun to play a role in medical education. Narrative medicine involves learning about narrative structures in order to become better at listening to and responding to patients’ stories. Therapeutic approaches such as narrative therapy and bibliotherapy also involve working with narratives – reading, composing, and discussing them. While these examples highlight the role of narrative in dealing with somatic or mental illness, we are also interested in how narratives contribute to wellbeing in its broader sense, outside a clinical setting. In what ways do narratives contribute to a good life? How are narratives related to things like personal development, job satisfaction, recreation, etc.? Narratives of illness, especially published works of fiction and autobiography, have societal benefits in addition to therapeutic ones. They offer representations of experience that have the capacity to generate sympathy and understanding and to reduce the stigma associated with illness. Narrative form does, however, pose risks as well, and they should also be considered. We invite papers dealing with topics such as the following:

– How can fictional and non-fictional narratives and creative writing foster well-being?

– Narrative therapy, bibliotherapy

– Narrative medicine: the use of narrative theory in educating health-care professionals

– Fictional and autobiographical narratives of illness, mental illness, disability, or addiction

– Methods for studying autobiographical narratives of illness

– Narrative and embodiment

– The narrative aspects of the various areas of subjective and societal wellbeing

– The problems and risks posed by narrative form in the contexts mentioned above

Please send a 300-word abstract for a 20-minute paper to laura.s.karttunen [at] uta.fi no later than September 12, 2017. Also include your affiliation, e-mail, and a 100-word bio. We will notify you of acceptance on September 19, 2017.
