The call for papers is currently open for the 2018 SCMS Conference in Toronto.
The deadline for panels, workshops, roundtables, and papers is Thursday, August 31, 2017, 5:00 PM CST. Seminar topics are due Friday, July 14, 2017, 5:00PM CST.
You can see the full call for submissions at the SCMS website:
Roundtables and seminars are new for this upcoming conference and can be an excellent fit for the SIG’s interests. Roundtables are essentially workshops, devoted to the scholarly study of cinema and media or disciplinary discussion rather than to professional concerns.
Seminars are colloquia in which each participant circulates essays in advance. The deadline for submitting topic is earlier (this Friday). This proposal stage needs only a precis, bio, and bibliography justifying the seminar’s inclusion in the program. Participation in accepted seminars will be open to the membership.
To solicit ideas for panels, workshops, roundtables, and seminars, I have set up an open thread on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/classicalhollywood/. I will also set up posts on our website and Twitter feed.
