Suggested Titles/Themes for Preconstituted Panels and Workshop for SCMS
2014 in Seattle
The suggested panel/workshop titles/themes are for your consideration. If
you wish, feel free to suggest another! We are providing this service to
help coordinate the papers of the SIG members so that a maximum number have
the best chance of being selected to participate in the conference; this
has proven to be a very successful tactic.
Unless otherwise indicated, email your 250-word abstract, along with a
select five-source bibliography and brief biographical statement, and note
whether you would be willing to chair a panel. Please copy and paste
proposal into the body of the email message (and avoid sending
attachments!) and include in the subject heading “Film Festival SCMS paper
(or workshop) submission.” Email proposal to co-chairs and graduate student
representative of the Film and Media Festival SIG: Tamara Falicov
tfalicov at ku.edu , Michael Talbott mt1252 at nyu.edu , and Ger Zielinski
geraldzielinski at trentu.ca Deadline: August 1st.
Evidently, the titles for each panel/workshop will have to be refined once
we have received your proposals and they have been sorted according to some
compelling theme. Only the designated panel chair may submit the final
panel/workshop proposal for all its members.

Film festivals that go beyond film to performance, or music festivals

“Play, Space, and Capital”
This panel invites abstracts for papers that investigate the relationship
between play (gaming, fan works, performance, ritual, productive play,
parody, and other examples), space (physical space, social space, ritual
space, boundaries, event or festival space, localities, and other
examples), and capital (production, consumption, “conduction” or
“pro-sumption,” structures of accumulation, legality and copyright, etc.).
We are most interested in critical and/or qualitative approaches to these
phenomena, and structural analyses, case studies, theoretical discussions,
and ethnographic or autoethnographic work are equally welcome.
Please e-mail a 250-350-word abstract, along with a five-source
bibliography and brief biographical statement, by August 1, 2013 to: Robin
Haislett (robin.haislett at ttu.edu).

other scholars, their volunteer labour, shared expertise, involvement in
