                         Call for Papers -- SCS 1999
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
SEEING TV THROUGH ARCHITECTURE / ARCHITECTURE THROUGH TELEVISION
 
Urban environments have become familiar backdrops for TV narratives--
c.f. COPS, World's Scariest Freeway Chases, etc.  But television's use of
architectural cues to frame the encounter between viewer and image goes
well beyond reality TV.
 
Possible topics might inlcude:
        - logic of televisual spaces (real and fictitious)
        - significance of staging, lighting and set design
        - environments made possible by TV
        - the city in television / television in the city
        - spatial approaches to individual channels/genres/shows.
 
Interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged.
Please reply by September 1 1998, using the official SCS entry form.
