SCMS 2016 Call For Submissions

Atlanta 2016 Call for Paper, Panel, and Workshop Proposals

The Society for Cinema and Media Studies announces its call for proposals for the 2016 conference.

Please join us Wednesday, March 30 – Sunday, April 3, 2016 at the Hilton Atlanta.

In Atlanta, fine dining, shopping and rich history combine with inspiration-inducing attractions to create a city with Southern charm and world-class sophistication. It’s easy to see why Atlanta, Georgia is one of the most popular destinations in the Southeast to live and to visit. Atlanta is the primary transportation hub of the Southeastern United States, via highway, railroad, and air, with Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport being the world’s busiest airport for the 15th straight year. Atlanta is home to Coca Cola, the Center for Civil and Human Rights, CNN, the world’s largest aquarium-Georgia Aquarium, the High Museum of Art, The Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, and Centennial Olympic Park. Atlanta is also home to Emory University, Georgia State University, and the nation’s most prestigious historically Black colleges: Clark Atlanta University, Morehouse College, Morehouse School of Medicine, and Spelman College. Join us!

The 2016 SCMS Conference Program Committee welcomes quality paper, panel, and workshop proposals on any topic related to cinema and media studies.

The deadline for all proposals and waiver requests is Friday, August 28, 2015 (5:00 pm Central Time).
