SSAAANZ2018 CFP Closing today!

The CFP for SSAAANZ2018: THE USES OF CINEMA Conference *Closes TODAY.*

Location: School of Media, Film and Journalism, Monash University, Melbourne
November 21–23, 2018

In recent years film and television scholarship has seen a renewed
focus on *the
uses of cinema* – that is, on educational, instructional, non-theatrical,
client-sponsored and government-sponsored filmmaking – in collections such
as *Films That Work *(Hediger and Vonderau, 2009), *Useful Cinema *(Acland
and Wasson, 2011), *Films of Fact: A History of Science in Documentary
Films and Television* (Boon 2008) and* Learning with the Lights Off:
Educational Film*(Orgeron, Orgeron and Streible 2012).
This work – along with 2018’s fiftieth anniversary of the events of May
1968 – provides an occasion for reflection upon *the usefulness of film* and
television practice and scholarship, and offers twin points of reference
for the Second Biennial Conference of the Screen Studies Association of
Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand (SSAAANZ).

SSAAANZ invites papers and panel suggestions from researchers, archivists,
educators, policymakers, and practitioners on any aspects of *the **critical,
social and political uses of cinema* including, *but not limited* to the
following themes:


   Activist film and television

   1968 and global film culture

   Film and television practice and praxis

   Film and ethnography

   Utilitarian filmmaking

   Women and cinema

   Seriality and cinema

   Cinema and the environment

   Cinema and the brain

   Film and pedagogy

   Film and tourism

   Language use on screen

   Misuses of cinema

   Allison De Fren (Occidental College, LA)

   Jason Mittell (Middlebury College, VT)

   Claire Perkins (Monash University, Melbourne)

   Haidee Wasson (Concordia University, Montréal)

Abstracts for individual papers and for pre-constituted panels (of up to
three speakers) are welcomed on any of the conference themes. For papers,
please submit an abstract of 150-200 words and a bio of 50 words for each
presenter. For panel proposals please submit a proposal for a panel
