The Society for Phenomenology and Media

20th Annual Conference

Wednesday 14 – Friday 16 March 2018

University of Akureyri

Akureyri, Iceland

Theme: Global Media Literacy in the Digital Age

Date: March 14-16, 2018

Deadline for Application:

December 17, 2017

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: socphenmedia@yahoo.com
