The Media and Cinema Studies program and the Cinema and Interactive
Media school at DePaul University are hosting a one-day celebratory
colloquium for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who on Saturday, May 04,
from 9-6. This event will feature roundtable discussions of scholars
and fans to speak about the impact of the show in various arenas as
well as screenings that span the half-century history of Doctor Who.
The emphasis of the colloquium will be the cultural importance of
Doctor Who.

The audience for this event is both graduate and undergraduate
students, both fans and scholars, and the focus should be on informed
and enlightening discussion rather than formal academic papers. “The
Celebration of Doctor Who” will take place on DePaul’s Loop campus.

If you’re interested in speaking on a round table, please send a 250
word abstract of your topic and a CV or resume to Paul Booth
([log in to unmask]) by Mar 15. Also please email Dr. Booth with any
questions. We hope that you will be able to join in the discussion and

Paul Booth, PhD
Assistant Professor of Media and Cinema Studies/Communication Technology
