The Adolescence in Film and Television Area seeks submissions exploring noteworthy coverage patterns, representations, and themes pertaining to the portrayal of adolescence/adolescents in film and television during any historical era and/or location throughout the world.

 

Possible topics of relevance include, but are certainly not limited to, advertising images and appeals, coming-of-age narratives, drug use, HIV/AIDS, juvenile delinquency, non-heterosexuality, otherness, premarital sex, product placement, queerness (broadly defined), violence and social aggression, and (losing one’s) virginity.

 

Interested individuals are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words (including presentation title). Undergraduate submissions are not accepted for presentation in this area. 

 

Decisions pertaining to the status of submitted abstracts will be communicated within two weeks of receipt. If you have questions of any kind prior to submitting your abstract, please contact Kylo-Patrick Hart, the Adolescence in Film and Television Area chair, by e-mail ([email protected]).
