Subject: DEADLINE EXTENDED: Vanishing Acts: Reclaiming Marginalised TV Identities

With apologies for cross posting, please note that the deadline for abstracts
has been extended to SUNDAY 10th MAY:

DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS: SUNDAY 10th MAY 2015
In collaboration with Northumbria University Department of Media and Communication Design and the British Association of Film, Television and Screen Studies (BAFTSS), we are delighted to announce our inaugural Television Studies Post-Graduate Symposium:
VANISHING ACTS: RECLAIMING MARGINALISED TELEVISION IDENTITIES

A postgraduate symposium

Thursday 11th June 2015, Northumbria University
Newcastle Upon Tyne, UK.

Day event: 9-9:30am Registration
9:30am- 4:30pm

Keynote speaker:

Dr. Brett Mills
(University of East Anglia)

As Vicky Ball asserts: ĎTelevision has been historically and pejoratively constructed as a feminine mediumí (2012: 2). This gendering of television has been discussed widely within film, television and cultural studies, raising questions both of televisionís cultural status and its capacity for telling previously untold stories. Recent work, including that of Mills (2013) and Ball (2013) has expanded the scope of analysis to televisual representations of, disability, homosexuality and other under-represented identities. Innovative programming such as Channel 4ís Banana, Cucumber and Tofu are prime examples of this. This symposium seeks to explore televisionís potential for representing and reclaiming transgressive and/or marginalised identities and narratives.
We welcome papers that address these and other related issues by engaging with the role of television in representing and reclaiming marginalised identities. Possible topics include but, are not limited to:

  *   Marginalisation of gender on television; womenís history, voices and roles.
  *   Problems and potential for the representation of sexuality/ethnicity/age on television.
  *   Representations of disability on television.
  *   Representations of class, regionality and accent.
  *   Challenging perceptions and previously untold stories.
  *   Marginalised identities within television production and presentation.

This event also seeks to establish connections between post-graduate researchers working in the field of television studies. As well as the keynote address, there will be a round table discussion, led by early career researchers, exploring the realities of completing a doctoral thesis and entering the academic jobs market.
Abstracts of 200-300 words for papers of 20 minutes, plus a short biography should be sent to [log in to unmask]<mailto:[log in to unmask]> by Monday 4th May 2015.
With the support of BAFTSS five travel bursaries of £50 are available to delegates attending the conference. Delegates interested in applying for the bursary should indicate this when submitting their abstracts as these will be awarded to the individual on a competitive basis.
