21 November. Papers and Panels: Television Research 

(Venue to be confirmed)

 

 

This conference builds on the Television Studies conference (University of
Queensland, Brisbane 2000) and the Television History Conference
(Powerhouse, Sydney 2005). It aims to bring researchers together to discuss
a broad range of topics in the following strands:

 

.        television history and historiography

.        television and the national

.        television and the transnational

.        television and genre

.        television comedy

 

 

 

Issues to be addressed include but are not limited to: new approaches to
television historiography; the extent to which television history is bound
up with the national (in terms of audiences, ratings, formats, critical
reception, popular memory, policy, regulation); the proposition that some
television genres, such as comedy, variety, sport and current affairs, are
less likely to join the global flow of television  than others; the extent
to which international trade in television formats is underpinned by ideas
of the trans/national.  

 

Abstracts for individual papers or joint submissions for pre-constituted
panels (of three speakers) are welcomed on any of the conference themes
listed above

 

Panel proposals and abstracts of 250 words should be sent via email on or
before April 11 2008 to  <mailto:[log in to unmask]> [log in to unmask]

 

Please include the following information in your abstract:

.          Title of paper or panel

.          Author(s) and/or panellists, and a contact email address

.          Three to four keywords

.          A short (maximum 100 words) biography
