Screen Studies Conference 2017

Screen Studies Conference 2017

The 27th international Screen Studies Conference will take place at the University of Glasgow, 23-25 June, 2017, programmed by Karen Lury for Screen journal.

There was no specific theme this year, and we invited proposals on all topics within film and television studies. For our plenary sessions we are delighted to have papers by Steven Connor (University of Cambridge), Carol Mavor (University of Manchester) and Anna McCarthy (New York University).

The deadline for submitting proposals has passed and all decisions have been circulated. The panel schedule can be downloaded from the link at right, though this should be considered an archive version as of 20 June; the final programme will be available in hard copy at the conference.


Registration for the conference has now closed.


Student accommodation located around 10-15 minutes walk from the venue was available to book during online registration, with a choice of standard and ensuite options. In both cases, clusters of 3-5 private bedrooms share a kitchen space. More information about the options can be found here: Cairncross House (standard), Kelvinhaugh Gate (ensuite).

If you prefer to arrange your own accommodation, a few nearby hotels, B&B's and guesthouses are listed below, or you can try Visit Scotland's accommodation search site.

* 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.

Venue and travel

The conference will take place at the Gilmorehill Centre, 9 University Avenue, University of Glasgow, G12 8NN. The programme, including maps and detailed orientation information was emailed to all registered delegates on Friday 16 June.
