Call for Proposals

for a preconstituted panel on Girls' Media Studies at

Console-ing Passions: A Conference on Television, Audio, Video, New Media, and
Feminism

April 24-26, 2008 in Santa Barbara, CA

The objective of this panel is to broaden and complicate feminist 
media studies by foregrounding girl-centered research.  Special 
consideration will be given to historical studies of girls' media 
culture, as well as projects dealing with girls' media production 
(films, websites, radio programs) and girls' uses of digital media 
technologies (cell phones, MP3 players, social networking sites).

Interested scholars should send a brief proposal (~250 words) to Mary 
Kearney ([log in to unmask]) by October 1, 2007.  Selections 
for the panel will be made by October 8, leaving time to develop full 
proposals for the final November 1 deadline.
