We invite members to organise panels that approach intermediality through an interdisciplinary lens and represent a wide range of interests and perspectives. We encourage the submission of complete panels, i.e. three or four speakers and a chair. In order to assemble panels, feel free to use the ‘Conference Participants Forum’ on the ISIS website to connect with others working on similar topics. We have provided a longer timeframe for submission of panels to allow delegates sufficient time to put them together.
We also accept individual paper submissions. These will be placed into themed panels by the conference organisers.
Finally, we will be having a limited number of workshops/round tables during the conference.
All presentations will be 20 minutes long followed by 10 minutes of questions and debate.
In order to participate in the conference, you must be an International Society for Intermedial Studies member. Anyone involved in intermedial research may become a member. Membership in ISIS is free of charge and involves no obligations. As a member you will get notice of upcoming conferences, seminars and projects. You can leave the society at any time. Membership is available here.
Moreover, please make sure to register to the website to be able to receive news and further details about the incoming conference.
Your verification of attendance will be shared with our Sponsors (i.e. Fáilte Ireland). Failte Ireland will retain the delegate’s personal data for a maximum of 12 months or until the completion of the external audit relating to that year whichever is the later. Thereafter, the details will be destroyed in a secure manner.
