Panel, Workshop, Round-Table Constitution Process

If you have an idea for a panel, workshop or round-table, and would like to solicit participation from FSAC members, send an email to the FSAC listserv using the address: fsac@filmstudies.ca

Please include your name, rank/status, institutional affiliation and an email address. Prospective participants should contact you directly, and you may select from among those proposals those that you would like to include in your session. Please notify proposers whether you will include them on your panel by December 10 so that they may submit their papers as part of the Open Call on December 16 if not accepted to your panel. Once the panel, workshop or round-table has been constituted, you may then submit the entire proposal to the general call by December 16.

* Please note that you should plan to only participate in a maximum of two forums, neither of which may be the same in kind. For example, you may propose and deliver a paper and submit a workshop proposal, but you may not submit two individual paper proposals (whether single or co-authored).

  • Presentations may be in either English or French.
  • Individual presentations are to be no longer than 20 minutes (including clips).
  • The length of presentations on panels, workshops, and/or round-tables may vary depending on the specific constitution of the session.
