   2001: Trans World Airwaves

   Console-ing Passions 2001 welcomes proposals for papers, panels, and
   workshops on television, video and feminism. The changing nature of
   television since the advent of digital media technologies and the
   emerging global economy have profound ramifications for contemporary
   studies of the televisual text. The fact that this year's conference
   will take place in Bristol, England will provide a unique opportunity to

   explore these important issues outside of an American context. Submit
   your work to what promises to be an exciting intercultural exchange in
   the new millennium. Proposals should foreground questions of sexual,
   national, racial and other cultural differences including feminist
   perspectives on:

   * Transnational Histories: Comparative Cultural Approaches to
   Broadcasting History
   * Feminism and Public Sphere Media Theory
   * The V-Chip / Censorship and Regulation
   * Euro-American Exchanges: Exploring the Neo-Reality TV Craze
   * Post-television, Digital Media and the Convergence Industries
   * Web-TV and TIVO: Charting the Global-Media Paradigm Shift
   * Is Video Art Making a Comeback?
   * Archiving and Preserving Video Texts
   * International Programs and American Audiences
   * American Programs and Global Audiences
   * TV and the Postcolonial Subject \ Viewing Race
   * Commercialism vs. Public Service Systems and the Female Audience
   * TV Wars: Cable vs. Satellite TV
   * Digital Media Arts and TV
   * Other ideas and topics are encouraged
