Upcoming Conference Details

17-20 June 2020
School of Creative Industries, University of Newcastle, NSW, Australia

The 2020 ASPERA conference will be held at the University of Newcastle’s city campus (NU Space) from 17-20 June.

Abstracts for papers and panel proposals are invited based on the theme of The Business – Valuing the Screen Industry. The key aim of the conference is to encourage a fresh look at the value of the screen business – also known as ‘The Biz’ – from a range of perspectives, and explore how our research, our practice and our teaching contributes to the broader value of the Screen Industry.

All abstracts received will be considered for peer-reviewed conference presentations. In addition, your paper can be included in a double-blind, peer reviewed stream to be published after the conference in a special issue of Studies in Australasian Cinema in 2020.

The call for papers is here. The deadline for a 300-word abstract is 28 January 2020
