We invite proposals pertaining to boundary-pushing film and media offerings, from any historical era, for presentation in a special series of panels at 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 noteworthy bold, unique, boundary-pushing, and/or controversial film and media offerings (past or present) from any area across the globe. Participants are encouraged to interpret the conference theme quite broadly and innovatively, as we encourage submissions from scholars, educators, students, and filmmakers/videographers at all levels and from a wide range of disciplines. Individual paper presentations will be limited to 20 minutes in length.

Given adequate participant interest and high-quality submissions, we are hoping to publish selected papers (with author's permission) in a special collection of essays pertaining to the conference theme.

Please e-mail presentation proposals containing (a) a one-page abstract with complete contact information (name, institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, contact telephone number) and (b) a one-paragraph author biography to Professor Kylo-Patrick Hart ( on or before Friday, July 19, 2013.

Decisions regarding the status of submitted proposals will be made and communicated as quickly as possible following the submission deadline, and certainly no later than August 1, 2013. For specific inquiries prior to submitting a proposal, please contact Dr. Hart at your convenience by e-mail (
