    Cardiff University, UK

    Deadline: March 1, 2019

    In light of the rising rhetoric of ‘traditional values’ in parts of Western and Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, this one-day event calls for an examination of what this conservative turn and the rise of illiberal political regimes imply for the voices of marginalised and alternative sexualities[1] and their representations in the former Eastern bloc and beyond.

    The symposium asks how analyses of historical legacies, cultural trends and geographical location might help us to understand and re/conceptualise alternative sexualities in the post-Soviet region and Europe at present, that is, how the way that queerness is coded responds to shifting sociopolitical, cultural and legal landscapes. The goal of the event is to bring together different strands of interdisciplinary research on sexuality and contribute to a dialogue between communities that have developed around them across the post-Soviet region and Europe.

    We welcome submissions addressing the following areas:

    • Sexualities, geo-temporality and shifting dynamics: sexualities and locality, sexual/intimate citizenship and geo-temporality; sexuality and geopolitics, ‘delayed’ (Borenstein, 2008) sexual revolutions in post-Soviet region, sexualities and class; sexualities and race; sexualities, mobilities and migration, sexualities, cultures and shifting moral regimes; regional appropriations of mainstream transnational sexualities (e.g. ‘global gay’)
    • Sexualities and the body: hetero- and homonormativity; positionality, queerness and non-binarity; trans-sexuality, transgender; a/sexual and other practices; sexuality, body politics and citizenship; LGBT and the missing T (transgender); LGBTQ or Q? How is queerness appropriated and domesticated in post-communist Europe?
    • Sexualities, popular culture and the media: heterosexism, mediated homophobia, misrecognitions and sensationalism;convergent media and multifaceted representations; social media and violence (trolling, etc.); performativity; visual representations of the body, over/sexualised masculinities and femininities; excessive aesthetics and sexualities, camp, Estrada; comedy and sexualities, etc.
    • Sexualities, media and generations: sexuality, generational differences and convergent media; learning about sexualities (schools, other educational institutions, social media); representations of sexualities and different age groups.
    • Mediated sexualities and in/exclusion: absences, omissions and/or visibility of sexual minorities. Reconsidering visibility in social media and popular culture: Does mediation of sexual minorities amplify diversity, foster inclusion or have an adverse effects and lead to compartmentalisation and intensifies exclusion? Commodification of mediated queerness.
    • Sexuality and law: the law, bodies and sexualities; Russian ‘Gay propaganda law’ of 2013 and variations; human rights in Russia and Europe; violence towards LGBTQ+ persons and communities.
    • Ethics & methodologies: frameworks and epistemologies; Western-centrism; decolonising movements; activism and academia; emotional and methodological challenges of researching alternative sexualities.


    We welcome submissions from early career scholars, established academics, as well as activists and practitioners. Abstracts should be submitted by Friday, March 1, 2019.

    Other forms of participation (posters, creative projects, film screenings, etc.) should be discussed in advance with the Organising Team. You will be notified of the panel’s decision by Monday, 15th April 2019. When sending your abstract, please indicate whether you would like your paper to be considered for publication in an edited volume (Routledge).

    Auckland University of Technology (AUT) is a young and dynamic university that offers a stimulating teaching and research environment with strong connections to business and industry. AUT has over 29,000 students and 2,500 staff across our three teaching campuses and is located in New Zealand's largest city, Auckland.

    AUT's Faculty of Design and Creative Technologies Faculty (DCT) creates jobs for the future. It is a transdisciplinary Faculty including disciplines in communication studies, computer science, design, engineering, mathematics, and an interdisciplinary area blending these fields with technology.

Refreshed, growing and open to new challenges, DCT has 450 FTE staff and serves as the locus of activity for the schools of Communication Studies, Art & Design, Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences and Colab.

    The Role

    Ranked within the world's Top 200 for Communication & Media Studies (QS World University Subject Rankings 2018), DCT's School of Communication Studies is seeking to appoint a new Head of School to support our ambitious Dean and new Deputy Dean in producing great graduates. The successful candidate will secure a substantive 3 year secondment to the role of Head of School (with an option for a further 3 year extension as agreed by mutual consent) and a permanent senior academic appointment (rank commensurate with the skills and experience of the successful applicant).

    This is a great time to be joining the Faculty. As a key member of DCT's Faculty executive, you'll work in close collaboration with the Dean and his team on Faculty strategic development and key decision making. It's all about 'One Faculty' - not just a grouping of schools - and you'll be a genuine advocate and voice for faculty decisions to ensure their successful implementation. You'll also lead the School of Communication Studies and its 80 FTE staff through a period of regeneration - this is a true people management role and there are a number of areas around teaching, research and service to be mapped out and implemented within DCT's roadmap and associated projects. The faculty is also recruiting for a Head of School in Art & Design during this exciting period of transition.

    To make this happen we need a leader with vision, exceptional communication skills and an ability to balance strategic thinking with operational management! You will be hands-on as you navigate this exciting opportunity leading a complex, sizeable School and driving cultural change. You will be a highly visible face of the school both with industry and internally, bringing people together during this time of reinvigoration. You'll foster plans whilst driving key initiatives, such as: curricula reform, streamlining research strategies & themes, introducing new methods of teaching, developing your own leadership teams and importantly simplifying and empowering the school. With the variety of research and the practice-based learning approach the complexity of the school can make it seem like a faculty itself, only on a smaller scale! The position is supported by a Deputy Head of School and also offers the potential for future career development in university management roles.

    Kadir Has University, Faculty of Communication, Istanbul (Turkey)

    Deadline: February 10, 2019

    Migration is one of the most controversial and pressing issues of our times. Due to economic deprivation, violence, human rights violations, political uncertainty and environmental problems, being on the road to somewhere has become the new norm. Yet in most cases, it is a departure without a certain arrival. According to the figures of UNHCR, 68.5 million people across the world are forcibly displaced and Turkey ranks first among top refugee-hosting countries. Between 2011-2016, the number of migrants in Turkey has reached 3.5 million. In this landscape, the significant questions of integration and harmonization arise, as discussed in M. Murat Erdoğan’s (2015) work on Syrians in Turkey.

    Research on migration in Film Studies has had an interdisciplinary outlook, using mainly the perspectives of sociology, psychology, cultural geography and anthropology, gender, media, migration and diaspora studies and law studies, whereas Turkish Film Studies has started to discuss migration through Hamid Naficy’s theories on “transnational cinemas”. Referring to Homi K. Bhabha’s theories, Deniz Göktürk’s article “Turkish Delight-German Fright: Unsettling Oppositions in Transnational Cinema” (2003) focused on a new way of communication: “speaking from the margins to the center”. Ella Shohat and Robert Stam (1994) contributed to the study of immigrant filmmakers in national cinemas. More recently, in the context of Turkish-German and European cinemas, Nilgün Bayraktar’s (2015) work discusses representations of migration and mobility in Europe since 1990s, along with Isolina Ballesteros’s Immigration Cinema in the New Europe (2015), Daniela Berghahn and Claudia Sternberg’s European Cinema in Motion (2010), and Sabine Hake and Barbara Mennel’s Turkish German Cinema in the New Millennium (2012).

    Celebrating its 20th anniversary, this year’s New Directions in Turkish Film Studies Conference scrutinizes the socio-cultural, political and economic aspects of migration and its influence on contemporary film and TV production in Turkey and abroad. Focusing on migrant narratives across audiovisual media, we aim to explore broader topics such as social media, mobility, citizenship, identity, integration and harmonization, refugee crisis, irregular migration/trafficking, insecurity, multiculturalism, cosmopolitanism and migrant rights.

    Within this perspective, the conference aims to bring together film scholars to discuss issues related to “cinema and migration”. Potential topics for presentations include but are not limited to:

    • Transnational and diasporic cinemas
    • Images of migration
    • Histories of migration
    • Language and communication in migrant cinema
    • Production modes of migrant filmmakers
    • Aesthetics, genres and styles in migrant film experience
    • Globalization, national cinemas and migration
    • Experimental film and video works on migration
    • Spaces, times and landscapes of migration
    • Migrant identities
    • Gender, mobility and migration

    Confirmed Keynote Speakers include Dudley Andrew (Yale University), John Hill (Royal Holloway, University of London), Deniz Göktürk (University of California, Berkeley), Robert Burgoyne (University of St Andrews), Nevena Dakovic (The University of Arts in Belgrade), and Nilgün Bayraktar (California College of the Arts).

    The conference will be held in English. Individual proposals should consist of an abstract (maximum 300 words) and a bio (maximum 100 words). Panel proposals should include the abstracts of each paper, bios of the panelists and a short description of the panel (max. 200 words). All proposals will be evaluated through a blind-review process.

    To submit a proposal, please send the abstracts and bios to the following email address:

    The deadline for submission is February 10, 2019.
