SCREENING SCHOLARSHIP MEDIA FESTIVAL#SSMF2015
Performing the Digital Festival Dates: March 27 – 28, 2015
Submissions Deadline: November 19, 2014 This year at the Screening Scholarship Media Festivalwe invite submissions from scholars, activists, artists, filmmakers, and educators that creativelyexplore how the social world is performed in and through digital media. Over the last few years, there has been a proliferation of scholarship that looks at media as a vehicle for performing and constituting reality, not merely representing it. With this in mind we ask: What are the ethics and politics of (re)presenting our work on screen? How do multiple lives — digital, analog, physical — connect and disconnect through on and offline pathways? What does it mean to be a scholar, artist, and/or educator in the digital age? What are the affordances and tensions of digital media for scholarship, activism, and pedagogy? About SSMF: The festival will highlight multimodal projects during two days of screenings and discussions showcasing film, soundscapes and recordings, blogs, websites, eBooks, animation, photographs, installations, and other media forms. Please visit our website for the submissions guidelines and information on how to submit your work. Peer Review: We are also recruiting students and scholars to serve as reviewers for SSMF 2015. If you are interested in serving as a peer reviewer for SSMF, please contact SSMF@camrapenn.org.
