We are pleased to announce the theme of the BAFTSS 7th Annual Conference to be held at the University of Birmingham, 25- 27 April 2019.

The theme of the conference  is ‘Intersecting Identities: Race, Sex, Nation.’  

Deadline for proposals is: Friday 14 December 2018 with completed proposal forms sent to baftssconference[at]gmail.com

If you are interested in organising a panel or presenting a paper with the GSSN group at the conference then please contact Helen Hughes h.hughes [at] surrey.ac.uk and Elizabeth Ward e.m.ward[at]hull.co.uk no later than 1 December 2018.

Individual abstracts and additional panels can be submitted and it would be great to see as many papers as possible on German-language cinema.

Funding is also available via BAFTSS, which has announced a scheme offering £300 funding to support the organisation of an event (typically a seminar or conference). The funding is open to postgraduates and faculty. The event must be held before 30th September 2019 and the funding application must be made at least 3 months in advance of the event.
