AUDIOVISUALTOPIA: A Conference on the Contemporary Screen Scene

Hosted by St. Louis University -- Madrid

October 23 - 24, 2015 -- Madrid

CALL for PAPERS: One hundred twenty years after the Lumiere Brothers’ Arrival of a Trainat Ciotat Station / L’arrivée d’un train en gare de La Ciotat and about 60 years after the insinuation of television into living rooms across the industrialized world, contemporary societies are saturated with audiovisual culture. More recently, the rise of widely affordable techno-substrates for production (digital photography) and exhibition (youtube, proliferating film festivals) are clearly enabling toward the “democratization” of audiovisual sophistication, such that the committed college sophomore can readily produce polished short films. In other words, there is much to celebrate!  For more information, please visit the AUDIOVISUALTOPIA website.

DUE DATE for ABSTRACTS: Saturday, June 27, 2015
