Screen Studies Conference

1-3 July 2022 (online)

The 31st International Screen Studies Conference, organised by the journal Screen, will be programmed by Screen Editors Professor Karen Lury and Professor Alastair Phillips.  

Keynote speakers:

Professor Mary Ann Doane (University of California, Berkeley)  

Dr. Racquel J. Gates (Columbia University)   

Dr. Amy Holdsworth (University of Glasgow)  

Over 130 papers have been programmed on all topics across screen studies, with one programming strand, ‘Screen Aesthetics’, aiming to renew engagement with traditional and emerging models of interpretation in relation to the textual and affective qualities of film, television and digital moving image media. Outwith the main programme, editors from [in]Transition, Movie and The Cine-Files have curated an audiovisual essay collection for delegates, and for the first time there will be a Screen film and TV quiz.  

The schedule and list of papers can be browsed at this link in advance of registration. The full programme, including abstracts, will be circulated to registered delegates.   

Registration is now open on Eventbrite.  Tickets cost £40 full/£20 student or unwaged. Closes 19 June.

Feedback from SSC2021 indicated that delegates appreciated many aspects of the online format, including increased accessibility across timezones, and the availability of recordings afterwards. The organisers listened to feedback about the SSC2021 platform, and panels this year will be held on Zoom rather than Zoom Webinar to allow more spontaneous discussion and better visibility of delegates.
