CONSOLE-ING PASSIONS: International Conference on Television, Video, Audio, New Media, and Feminism (July 27-29 2017)
East Carolina University, Greenville, NC
Console-ing Passions was founded in 1989 by a group of feminist media scholars and artists looking to create a space to present work and foster scholarship on issues of television, culture, and identity, with an emphasis on gender and sexuality. The first Console-ing Passions conference was held at the University of Iowa in 1992. Since then, Console-ing Passions has expanded to become not only the most important conference for scholars studying gender in television but also among the top conferences for scholars of media generally.
The 2017 Conference Organizing Committee invites proposals for individual papers, pre-constituted panels, and pre-constituted forums that consider television, video, audio, or new media alongside gender, sexuality, race, and/or other intersected components of identity. We also welcome proposals for video, audio, or new media creative works related to gender and other modes of identity. In light of the possible persistence of House Bill 2 in North Carolina, the host committee encourages and will give special preference to panels, forums and creative works that engage with the stakes and consequences of studying, teaching and writing about LGBTQI representation and how it intersects with gender identity, racial and economic justice, class, immigration and citizenship, ability and disability, incarceration, and other categories and social concerns. In particular, we encourage encourage panels and forums specifically devoted to critically interrogating HB2 and anti-LGBTQI legislation in North Carolina and elsewhere in order to make CP@ECU a venue for engaging and analyzing the impact of this legislation as well as a space of resistance.
