Call for Papers – NECS Urban Studies Work Group, Prague 2013.

The NECS (European Network of Cinema and Media Studies) Urban Studies Work Group is looking to organise pre-constituted panel(s) for the 2013 conference (Prague, June 20-22) on any urban-themed topic in film/media studies that intersects with the conference theme (media politics/political media). See http://www.necs.org/ for the general CFP and suggested topic headings (political aesthetics, political theory, political economy, political history, politics of engagements), any of which might be combined productively with urban/spatial perspectives.

Please send abstracts of max 150 words, with 3-5 key bibliographical references and institutional affiliation, to lawrencemwebb@gmail.com by 14th January.

Alternatively, if you already have a pre-constituted panel that you would like the Urban Studies Work Group to endorse, please let us know.

Please also join the Work Group on the NECS site if you are interested! We are also aiming to organise the first meeting of the group this year, so feel free to get in touch if you want to be involved further.
