Perspectives and Challenges for Cinema and Media Studies.
Vienna, Austria June 21 - 23, 2007

Founded in February of 2006, NECS, the European Network for Cinema and
Media Studies, brings together scholars and researchers in the field of
cinema, film and media studies with archivists and film and media
professionals who share a common interest in academic film study and the
preservation, distribution and programming of film and media art and the
film heritage.

The first NECS workshop held in Berlin on the occasion of the network’s
founding provided an overview of the current state of cinema and media
studies in Europe, taking stock of the respective situations in the
various institutions (universities, archives, museums).

Now the NECS Vienna conference, hosted by SYNEMA and the Department for
Theatre, Film and Media Studies, Vienna University and scheduled to take
place on 21-23 June 2007, provides a platform for developing new
perspectives and future agendas for film study in Europe.

With the new digital culture of the moving image in full swing,
scholars, archivists and filmmakers alike need to reflect on the state
of cinema and its future, as well as on the development of film studies
at the tertiary education level in Europe. The conference will bring
together contributions that provide insight into ongoing research with
panels and roundtables on the state of the discipline and current issues
in research, teaching, archiving, presenting and programming. The aim of
the conference is to widen and sustain a burgeoning network of film and
media scholars that will promote new research and teaching initiatives
on a European level.

Scholars from all areas of film study, whether previously attached to
NECS or new to the initiative, are invited to submit proposals for
contributions to the conference committee before January 31st, 2007.

Confirmed keynote speakers include Prof. Tim Bergfelder, University of
Southampton, UK; Prof. Elisabeth Büttner, University of Vienna.

In order to provide a thematic framework, we propose a number of focal
issues in the field of film study. Proposals for the NECS Vienna
conference must not be limited to, but may concern any of the following

a. The impact of global media conglomeration on film cultures and
film programming in Europe
b. The digitization of film archives and its impact on the
visibility and consumption of European films, in conjunction with the
emergence of new interfaces of consumption (home entertainment,
satellite channels, Video On Demand services);
c. The transnationalisation of film cultures in Europe, both on the
level of individual films and on an institutional level, i.e. in film
festival and their surrounding critical discourses;
d. European cinema aesthetics in the digital age and the future of
auteur cinema in an environment of film styles driven by digital imaging
and special effects.

We would like to invite proposals for short, incisive papers of 15 to 20
minutes and/or panels by January 31st, 2007, to the following address:
