Sunday, April 21, 2013 - 8:10pm
Kylo-Patrick R. Hart, Dept. of Film, Television and Digital Media, TCU

We invite presentation proposals for the Alternative Visions in Media Conference, to be held at Texas Christian University (Fort Worth, Texas) November 8-9, 2013.

The conference organizers are seeking historically and theoretically intriguing presentations that explore non-, counter-, and/or anti-mainstream media artifacts from any historical era, and from any area across the globe. Participants are encouraged to interpret the conference theme quite broadly and innovatively.

Possible topics may include (but are certainly not limited to) media offerings of the avant-garde, camp, cult, experimental, exploitation, extreme, independent, kitsch, pulp, schlock, and/or trash varieties.
