This International Conference on Television, Video, Audio, New Media, and Feminism will take place June 16 to June 18, 2016. Console-ing Passions was founded in 1989 by a group of feminist media scholars and artists looking to create a space to present work and foster scholarship on issues of television, culture, and identity, with an emphasis on gender and sexuality. The first Console-ing Passions conference was held at the University of Iowa in 1992. Since then, Console-ing Passions has expanded to become not only the most important conference for scholars studying gender in television but also among the top conferences for scholars of media generally.
The 2016 Conference Organizing Committee invites proposals for individual papers, pre-constituted panels, and pre-constituted forums that consider television, video, audio, or new media alongside gender, sexuality, race, or other intersected components of identity. We also welcome proposals for video, audio, or new media creative works related to gender and other modes of identity.
