EIFAC 2014 Call for Papers released

Edinburgh International Film Audience Conference (EIFAC) returns in 2014 with a renewed focus on exciting audience research taking place within academic film studies and within the film industry. The two-day conference will shine the spotlight on film cultures and film audiences by showcasing an expanding pool of scholarship, which moves away from classical textual modes of research to include empirical fieldwork. The event will debate how different methodologies and perspectives can help further our understanding of the most important people in the world of film – the audience.

There is a lot to be learned from other subject areas, therefore, this year sees the call for papers reach out to non-film disciplines by encouraging scholars in television and game studies to share their empirical research.

We are inviting submissions of papers and work in progress concerned with empirical research on screen audiences. Please see the Call for Papers for more details of the submission process. Deadline for submissions is Friday 29th November 2013.
