International Conference on Television, Video, Audio, New Media, and Feminism
July 27-29 2017
East Carolina University
Console-ing Passions was founded in 1989 by a group of feminist media scholars and artists looking to create a space to present work and foster scholarship on issues of television, culture, and identity, with an emphasis on gender and sexuality.
The 2017 Conference Organizing Committee invites proposals for individual papers, pre-constituted panels, and pre-constituted forums that consider television, video, audio, or new media alongside gender, sexuality, race, and/or other intersected components of identity. We also welcome proposals for video, audio, or new media creative works related to gender and other modes of identity. In light of the possible persistence of House Bill 2 in North Carolina, the host committee encourages and will give special preference to panels, forums and creative works that engage with the stakes and consequences of studying, teaching and writing about LGBTQI representation and how it intersects with gender identity, racial and economic justice, class, immigration and citizenship, ability and disability, incarceration, and other categories and social concerns. In particular, we encourage encourage panels and forums specifically devoted to critically interrogating HB2 and anti-LGBTQI legislation in North Carolina and elsewhere in order to make CP@ECU a venue for engaging and analyzing the impact of this legislation as well as a space of resistance.
The deadline for submissions is 11:59 PM (US Eastern Daylight Time) on Monday, January 16 2017.
Proposers may submit:
1. one paper or creative project, and one CP Forum.
Attendees may present:
1. one paper or creative project, and may participate in one CP Forum.
