PRACTICAL INFORMATION re: CONFERENCE VENUE
The Royal Flemish Academy of Belgium for Science and the Arts
Address: Academy Palace - Hertogsstraat 1 - 1000 Brussel
PARKING: Follow the inner lane of the inner ring road, past the Wetstraat (=Regentlaan), take the rightmost lane, and either enter the Academy Palace here, or turn around the domain of the Academy Palace to enter it at the side of the Royal Palace.
GETTING AROUND IN BRUSSELS: Brussels has an intricate public transportation network of trains, buses, trams, and metros. On the website of the MIVB/STIB – the public transport company that exploits the Brussels metro, tram, and bus lines – you can find a journey planner that includes all of these four options: http://www.mivb.be
The metro station closest to the Royal Academy is ‘Troon/Trone.’ The nearest bus station is also called ‘Troon/Trone.’
The SPM-recommended hotel, Motel One, is a 10-minute walk away from the conference venue. The metro stop closest to the hotel is ‘Park/Parc.’
Panel proposals should be organized around specific media, for example: film, the Internet, mobile communication, medieval manuscripts, print media (books, newspapers, and magazines), stage drama, television, visual art, dance, etc. Panel proposals should include three papers, one of them by the panel organizer. Individual abstract submissions are assigned to a panel by the conference host. The Society for Phenomenology and Media encourages interdisciplinary approaches and theoretical diversity. Individual papers and panels need not be limited to phenomenological approaches. In the past, papers have come from diverse theoretical perspectives, including critical theory, cultural studies, hermeneutics, Marxism, New Historicism, post-colonial theory, pragmatism, semiotics, speech-act theory, and others. Participants have come from a wide range of disciplines: philosophy, media studies, communications, psychology, history, political science, sociology, rhetoric, literary theory, cognitive science, cultural studies, and other fields.
Doctoral students are invited to submit proposals, but should note that SPM limits the number of papers from students. Conference abstracts and panel proposals submitted are peer reviewed. All papers accepted and presented at the conference may be submitted for publication in the annual SPM Conference Proceedings and for blind review and publication in Glimpse, the official annual journal of SPM. For consideration, send abstracts, panel proposals, and other questions to the Secretary of the Society for Phenomenology and Media: firstname.lastname@example.org
