The deadline to submit an abstract to the Cinema at the end of the World conference has been extended to 31 March 2015.

Please consider submitting an abstract yourself and encourage HDR students and ECRs to do so.

The conference themes are broad; intersections between screen culture and the concerns of most Humanities disciplines, including cultural and media studies, social science, geography, built environment, and art and design, as well as creative interventions, are welcomed.

Looking forward to seeing you at the conference in Melbourne this November.

Best regards,

Call for Papers


16–19 November 2015

Monash University, Caulfield, Melbourne

The Inaugural Conference of the South of the West: Southern Screens Research Network

The Conference Conveners will accept proposals for papers until 31 March 2015. Abstracts of no more than 250-words and a 100-word biography should be sent to: halina.bluzer at monash.edu<mailto:halina.bluzer at monash.edu>

Every day hundreds of people travel back and forth between southern countries, including Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, New Zealand, Indonesia, Timor Leste and South Africa; and with these people travel cultures, experiences, memories and images. The Cinema at the End of the World International Conference takes on a transversal South-South approach to the study of visual culture in transnational, transcultural and geopolitical contexts. It seeks to create conditions for the generation, sharing and circulation of new knowledge that is both southern and about the South as a specific kind of material and imaginary territory (or territories). It does so through the study of the southern hemisphere’s screen cultures, addressing the broad spectrum of cultural expression in both traditional and new screen media, including film, television, video, digital, interactive, and online and portable technologies.

Proposals are invited for papers that explore intersections of screen works from countries south of the Equator and one or more of the following themes:

Cross-Cultural Translations, Transformations and Mutations Settler Culture and Modernity Indigenous and Localised Media Practice and Theory Representations of Trauma and Violence Landscapes and Urbanisation

Plenary speakers:

Patricio Guzmán (TBC)

Felicity Collins (La Trobe University)

Lúcia Nagib (University of Reading)

Mariano Mestman (University of Buenos Aires)

Fernão Ramos (University of Campinas, Brasil)
