CFP: Film and Media 2014. Visions of Identity.

Per chi volesse passare fine Giugno a Londra, è uscito il CFP della conferenza annuale Film and Media che merita un pensiero per gli studiosi di cinema e tv.

The Fourth Annual London Film and Media Conference

26-28 June 2014 

We are pleased to announce that FILM AND MEDIA 2014: The Fourth Annual London Film and Media Conference, organised by Academic Conferences London,will be held from 09.30h on Thursday 26 June 2014 to 16.30h on Saturday 28 June 2014 at the Institute of Education Conference Centre, University of London, 20 Bedford Way, London WC1, UK.

The Conference theme for 2014 is Visions of Identity: Global Film and Media. For the full Call for Papers, please see elsewhere on this site. This major international conference will again seek to explore, celebrate and critique the screen-based traditions of film, TV and digital media in all their manifold dimensions. This pioneering annual conference, now in its fourth edition, has proved to be of considerable interest and value to established scholars, early career Faculty, young researchers, and anyone with a commitment to learning about global film and media in a dynamic and friendly academic context. Please see the dozens of unsolicited appreciations quoted elsewhere on this site.

At our previous event in Summer 2013, we were honoured to schedule some 200 Speakers as well as other Delegates, making this again the largest annual UK 'home-grown' gathering in  the field.  Reflecting an extremely wide range of interests in Film and Media, they proved to be a fascinating mix of established and emerging scholars from nearly 40 countries - the UK, Albania, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, The Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Taiwan, Turkey and the USA.
