Given the current sociopolitical context in the United States and internationally that includes the fight for reproductive freedom, unprecedented and catastrophic changes in our global climate, historic and contemporary predominance of displaced and in-flight populations, and the rise of totalitarian regimes, we envision a groundbreaking Console-ing Passions conference held June 20-22, 2024 at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, that will catalyze conversations that matter among its community members. To this end, the conference theme for Console-ing Passions 2024 is: Forging Social Justice.
The 2024 Conference Organizing Committee at Indiana University invites proposals for individual papers and pre-constituted panels that consider the conference theme of Forging Social Justice and any other aspects of television, video, audio, or new media through an intersectional lens including gender, sexuality, race, and/or other systems of inequality.
Participants may submit: one paper (individual) or be part of a pre-constituted panel.
- Individual Papers: Individuals submitting paper proposals should provide a title, an abstract of 250 words, a short bio, and contact information. Co-authored papers are acceptable.
- Panels: Panel coordinators should submit a title and a 250-word rationale for the pre-constituted panel as a whole, as well as a title, a 250-word abstract, a short bio, and contact information for each panel participant. Panels may include 3-4 papers. Co-authored papers are acceptable. Panels that include a diversity of panelist affiliations and experience levels are strongly encouraged.
