SSC2016, 24-26 June 2016
The 26th international Screen Studies Conference will take place at the University of Glasgow, 24-26 June, 2016, programmed by Dimitris Eleftheriotis for Screen journal.
For our opening plenary session we are delighted to have keynote papers presented by Chris Berry (King's College London) and Stephen Teo (Nanyang Technological University), whose extensive work on Asian cinemas has been formative in the field.
Equally formative in television studies has been the work of Lynn Spigel (Northwestern University), who will deliver the keynote presentation at the closing plenary. Read more about our keynote talks.
The deadline for proposals passed in early January, with all decisions now circulated. A full list of speakers, papers and panels can be found in the links at right.
All attendees, including speakers, pay a registration fee of £176(standard) or £95(student), which includes entrance to all conference talks, lunches and refreshments over the weekend and a Friday evening reception at the Hunterian Museum. During registration, delegates can book a place at the conference dinner on Saturday evening (£22) at Zizzi's West End Italian Restaurant. We hope the lower-priced dinner option this year will allow more of our delegates to participate.
Publishers should book stands, delegate places and/or and pack inserts directly with the Screen office via a separate form rather than registering online. Please email email@example.com if you have not yet received a booking form. Publisher attendance fees are set at the same rate as the standard delegate fee, but with VAT added.
A block booking of student accommodation about ten minutes' walk from the venue, with a choice of standard (£21.70/night) and ensuite (£38.35/night) options has been reserved for delegates. This will be available to book during registration. With both options, clusters of 3-5 private bedrooms share a kitchen space.

* For non-UK delegates: A guesthouse is a larger ‘Bed and Breakfast’, typically offering breakfast included in the room rate but not licensed to serve alcoholic beverages. Frequently guest houses are family run so have limited staff, therefore check-in is limited to certain hours unlike hotels which maintain a staff presence 24 hours a day.
