Apologies for cross posting.

The graduate students of the Department of Media Studies and Film at 
The New School are pleased to announce a call for papers and projects 
to the 11th annual Critical Themes in Media Studies Conference, taking 
place April 15-16, 2011 in New York City.

Founded in 1919, the New School was conceived to promote innovative 
and progressive education. The Media Studies Department, founded in 
1975 as the first in the country, was designed from its inception to 
be a home for both theory and practice-based scholarship.
In the spirit of these traditions, this year we would like to 
encourage the submission of traditional scholarly papers as well as 
multi-modal research projects. We ask all applicants to be prepared to 
present their work in a traditional academic format, but individual 
panels may also be arranged to encompass projects in a variety of 
configurations. Critical Themes in Media Studies is not organized 
around a single theme. Instead, we welcome work from across a wide 
range of topics related to media theory. Panels will be formed around 
common areas of interest that emerge from the works received.
Presenters are invited to submit project proposals that include but 
are not limited to: papers, interactive installations, maps, walking 
tours, performances, and so on. We will send notification in advance 
to all presenters for whom we are able to accommodate any non- 
traditional formats and provide technical services.
