Call for Papers – "Besides the Screen: Moving Images during
Distribution, Exhibition and Consumption"

New media technologies impact cinema well beyond the screen; they also
promote the reorganization of its logic of distribution, modes of
consumption and viewing regimes. Once, it was video and television
broadcast that disturbed traditional cinematographic experience,
revealing the image as soon as it was captured and bringing it into
the home of the audience. Nowadays, computer imaging and online
networks cause an even stronger effect to the medium, increasing the
public agency in the movie market dynamics.

In order to understand how these significant changes in the modes of
accessing and distributing moving images might affect cinematographic
experience, economy and historiography, we are obliged to rethink not
only of its future, but its past as well. Besides the Screen is a
one-day international symposium that aims to map research projects on
new and old forms of moving image distribution, exhibition and
consumption. The conference will be hosted in Goldsmiths College
(University of London) in November, with the support of the Goldsmiths
Graduate School.

We invite proposals for paper presentations in the form of 250-word
abstracts, to be sent to the email besidesthescreen@gmail.com until
June 11th 2010. The list of selected works will be published online at
besidesthescreen.blogspot.com (under construction).
