Console-ing Passions Dublin 2015 – CFP deadline

CP23 Rebooting Feminism
Console-ing Passions International Conference on Television, Video, Audio, New Media and Feminism
June 18-20, 2015 Dublin

Deadline for submissions: October 1, 2014
Applicants will be notified of acceptance by January 31, 2015.

Founded by a group of feminist media scholars and artists in 1989, Console-ing Passions held its first official conference at the University of Iowa in 1992. Since that time, Console-ing Passions has become the leading international scholarly network for feminist research in television, video, audio, and new media.

23 years after the group’s founding, we find ourselves in a dramatically different media landscape, as well as a world in which the meanings of feminism, postfeminism, and the intersections of feminism with race, sexuality, and class are hotly contested in the academy, in the popular press, and in contemporary media representations. Console-ing Passions 2015 asks, after decades of postfeminist retrenchment, is feminism due for a reboot?

CP23 seeks to bring together papers, panels, screenings, and workshops that investigate both feminism and media studies at a crossroads. We are particularly interested in work that brings together two or more of Console-ing Passions’ driving themes: gender, race and ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, and class. The 2015 conference invites pre-constituted panels and workshops, as well as individual papers that consider the breadth of feminist concerns related to television, digital, video, audio, and new media, as well as mobile and gaming technologies. Pre-constituted panels and workshops are especially encouraged.
