Call for Papers

The 32nd International Screen Studies Conference, organised by the journal Screen, will be held in Glasgow from Friday 30 June to Sunday 2 July 2023.

Screen editors Jackie Stacey and Sarah Street welcome proposals for single papers, audiovisual essays and pre-constituted three-person panels on all topics in screen studies.

We are particularly keen to encourage contributors to a programming strand which will focus on the theme of Screen Worlds. We invite responses to this theme which address questions of world-making and world-building and interrogate theories and politics of 'worlding' and 'unworlding' as discussed in decolonial studies and eco-criticism.

Proposals on how screen worlds are imagined and materialised could range from critical race studies to climate crisis politics, and from architecture and design to changing historical tastes and aesthetic forms. Keynote speakers who will address this particular strand of the conference will be confirmed in due course.

The deadline for submitting proposals is midnight (GMT) on Sunday 8 January 2023.
