Call for Papers: Screen Culture
Call For Papers: Screen culture: intermediality and interculturality The 2nd conference—Intermediality and Interculturality—will be held at the School for the Contemporary Arts-SFU on March 12, 2009. This year the focus will be on screen culture. Screen culture has become an integral part of modern society. New technologies, digital screens and computer networks, comprise important tools of communication, art and culture experience. We are living in a world saturated by mass media, linked by images and texts through screens. Screen culture transforms cultural habits and values and also influences our ways of telling stories and creating cultural identity. How does screen culture affect societies around the world in the age of globalization? This conference will address screen culture through intermediality practices and interculturality experiences.
