CFP Alternative Visions: Trash/Cult/Experimental/Avant-Garde/Extreme
Cinema and Television Conference

We invite panel and individual-paper proposals for the Alternative
Visions: Trash/Cult/Experimental/Avant-Garde/Extreme Cinema and
Television Conference, to be held at Plymouth State University (Plymouth,
New Hampshire) April 11-12, 2008. The members of the conference
committee are seeking contributions that examine noteworthy non-, counter-
, and/or anti-mainstream cinematic and televisual artifacts from the
birth of film and television to the present, and from any area across the
globe. Participants are encouraged to interpret the conference theme
broadly and innovatively. Individual presentations will be limited to 20
minutes in length. We also invite innovative examples of such offerings
for screening and discussion at this conference.

We encourage submissions from scholars, educators, students, and
filmmakers/videographers at all levels, and from disciplines including
anthropology, communication, cultural studies, film studies, history,
journalism, LGBT studies, media studies, popular culture, sociology, and
television studies. We intend to publish selected papers (with author’s
permission) in a special anthology pertaining to the conference theme.
As a bonus, please note that the conference dates allow presenters to
take advantage of a much-needed weekend getaway before the end-of-
semester “insanity” kicks in!

Persons submitting individual-paper or screening proposals are asked to
submit a one-page abstract/description of project with complete contact
information (name, institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses,
daytime telephone number). Panel proposals (featuring three paper-
presentations total) should include panel title, brief description of
panel theme, name of the panel chair, one-page abstracts of each paper in
the panel, and complete contact information for each presenter on the
panel (name, institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses,
daytime telephone number). In order to be considered, all proposals must
be received no later than November 2, 2007.

Please mail or e-mail conference proposals to: Alternative Visions
Conference, Attn: Kylo-Patrick Hart, Department of Communication and
Media Studies, Plymouth State University, 17 High Street, MSC 60,
Plymouth, NH 03264; krhart_at_plymouth.edu

For specific inquiries prior to submitting a proposal, please contact
