Looking towards the Future
ECR2021 Online Symposium for Screenwriting/Screenplay Early Career Researchers
Call for Papers for the 2021 ‘Looking towards the Future’ online symposium specifically aimed at SRN Early Career Researchers taking place the week commencing 15th of November. It follows the SRN2021 Research Seminar Series.
The symposium is a unique opportunity for early career researchers to present and discuss their on-going research with the wider research field.
Presentations should be pre-recorded and no longer than 10 minutes. The purpose of each presentation is to introduce on-going research and highlight a specific research question under examination that can be discussed during a live panel. Ending the presentation with queries to the listeners and fellow panelists are encouraged to make the live sessions as engaging as possible. This could, for example, be archive or reference related queries as well as broader questions of publication outlets and possible collaborations.
The presentations will be organised into panels depending on topics and time zones with no more than 4 presenters in each panel. The Early Career Representative, Ann Igelstrom, will chair the live panels together with a researcher from the specific field under discussion. The pre-recorded presentations will be uploaded and made available on the SRN2021 Research Seminar Series website. Questions by attendees can be submitted ahead of the live panel.
During the live panels, each presenter gives a brief summary of their presentation (2 min) followed by a discussion with fellow panelists and attendees led by the chair. The session ends with a general conversation. The aim is that the panels do not exceed one hour to maximise the ease to attend and minimise ‘screen fatigue’.
The number of panels and exact dates will be decided depending on received and accepted abstracts.
Please submit your abstract (max 300 words) together with a short bio before 10th of August. This allows enough time to organise the event and makes it possible to introduce the Symposium program and panelists during the SRN2021 Research Seminar Series.
Please send your submission and any queries to firstname.lastname@example.org
