Appel à communications, XXVI IAMHIST conference "Media and History Revisited" : CFP Special Area "Digital Archives and Media Historical Research"

Date limite : 1er mars

Indiana University (Bloomington, IN, USA), 17-20 June 2015

Papers are invited for the special area “The Digital Archive and Historical Media Research” at the XXVI IAMHIST (International Association of Media and History) Conference, to be held at Indiana University (Bloomington, IN, USA) on the theme of “Media and History Revisited.”

This area seeks paper and panel proposals on how the digitization of traditional archives and the emergence of online open-access archives has, is, and will continue to change the nature of historical media research. Themes to explore may include, but are not limited to :

Research explicitly based on digital archives. Methodological and theoretical approaches to digital archives. Critical approaches to how the Digital Humanities as an inter-disciplinary field continues to affect, expand and possibly also limit media historical research. Scholars and archivists involved in specific digital archive projects (archives, research tools, metadata) that are of interest to media historians are especially welcome to present their work and/or give thematic workshops. Invited speakers for the IAMHIST conference include Robert Rosenstone (California Institute of Technology) and Gary Edgerton (Butler University). We also hope to have as a special guest Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Marcel Ophuls. The general call for papers for the conference, can be found here.

We welcome proposals either for individual papers or full panels of 3-4 papers. We anticipate sessions of 90 minutes, including questions/discussion. Abstract of no more than 300 words and a cover sheet with a brief biographical note, (including your institutional affiliation (where relevant) and your contact details) should be sent to Professor Brett Bowles (bowlesb@indiana.edu) and to the area chair (leen.engelen@soc.kuleuven.be) before 1 March 2015.

You will be notified of the acceptance of your paper by 20 March 2015

It is expected that the conference fee will be approximately $150. Day rates and reduced rates for postgraduate students will be available. All participants are expected to be IAMHIST members. Membership includes several benefits, including a subscription to the Historical Journal of Film, Radio, and Television.
