Sydney Screen Studies Network is still seeking proposals for our 2019 symposium, Dial S for Screen Studies<https://wordpress.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=874f88bf15b1c1cd4ee175472&id=06a0efb3d2&e=1b31705502> held 28th to 29th of November 2019 at UNSW, Sydney. The symposium will be composed of two streams: (1) current approaches to screen theory and (2) futures of screen-based creative practice.

Current Approaches to Screen Theory
We invite scholars working across film, television, video, and internet media to present a twenty-minute paper of research on contemporary screen studies and screen culture from a variety of perspectives. Some suggested perspectives for this stream include:

  *   Early cinemas, classic cinemas and/or contemporary cinemas
  *   Television, traditional and new
  *   Screen history
  *   Spectatorship
  *   Mass media and social media
  *   Screen theory/screen philosophy
  *   Intersections of academic research and practice
  *   Interdisciplinary approaches to the screen
  *   The screen as text
  *   The screen as art
  *   New media forms
  *   Gender, sexuality, race and class in screen media
  *   Cognitive Theories/ Methodologies
  *   History/theory of performance on screen

Futures of Screen-Based Creative Practice
This stream invites scholars to explore the future of screen-based creative practice.

  *   What is the future of screen practice?
  *   How will screens be viewed in the future and how does creative practice respond to this?
  *   How have shifts in screen culture affected current screen practice?
  *   Have developments in new technology impacted the work of the practitioner and the types of creative work they make?
  *   What is a/the ‘studio’ in current screen practice?
  *   What does it mean to be a screen artist in the age of alternative screen culture?

Papers for this stream could be a traditional seminar paper or a combination of a shorter paper with a short screening of a work or work in progress. The accompanying screened work can range from five to ten minutes in length. Please note the total time of the presentation should not be more than twenty minutes. Opportunities for the screening of longer works may be available for presenters that have their papers accepted.

We are also seeking workshop proposals for one-hour workshops. Potential workshop topics could include: screen practice, screen theory (including reading groups), screen teaching pedagogy, and article writing.

Please send your proposals including a title, an abstract (150 words), and a short biography to dialsforscreenstudies at gmail.com<mailto:dialsforscreenstudies at gmail.com> by Wednesday 25th of September 2019. Please make note of your preferred stream or if your proposal is for a workshop.
