Call for Papers:
Society for Cinema and Media Studies
Hosted by the University of Oklahoma Film and Media Studies Program
April 18-19, 2014
The second annual SCMS Undergraduate Conference invites undergraduate students to propose papers representing their best work in cinema and media studies. At the conference, students will deliver papers on any aspect of cinema and media history, criticism, or theory. Each presenter will be assigned a 20-minute slot on the program, which corresponds to approximately eight, double-spaced pages when presented at normal talking speed with a few visual aids.
Any students who wishes to participate in the conference must submit a completed paper proposal form, which will include a 200-word abstract. Do not submit complete papers. The submission form can be downloaded HERE.
A panel composed of University of Oklahoma Film and Media Studies faculty will select 30 proposals for acceptance to the conference. All selected conference participants must agree to attend both full days of the event. Registration is free, and on-campus accommodations can be provided at a discounted student rate for conference participants. Students are encouraged to seek travel funding from their home institutions to defray the costs of travel and lodging.
The deadline for proposals is midnight CST on Wednesday, January 15, 2014. Completed proposal forms should be sent via email to firstname.lastname@example.org with "SCMS-U 2014” in the subject line of the email.
