Flow Conference this Week

This week marks the fourth biennial Flow Conference, put on by the Department of Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas at Austin.

This just in from the Flow Conference staff:

The 2012 Flow Conference staff is pleased to invite you to the fourth biennial Flow Conference, a critical forum on television and media culture.  The conference will be held Thursday, November 1st to Saturday, November 3rd at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center.

The Flow Conference is hosted by the graduate students and faculty of the Department of Radio-Television-Film at the University of Texas at Austin.  The conference is comprised of a series of roundtable discussions addressing the future of television and media culture and scholarship.  The goal of the Flow Conference is conversation; there are no traditional panels, papers or plenary sessions.  Instead each roundtable is organized around a compelling question regarding television and media culture.  We have invited columnists from the FlowTV journal to propose these organizing questions to which scholars, practitioners, journalists, and other members of the public have proposed responses.

Attendees are also invited to attend the conference screening and opening reception at the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum (Friday, November 2nd, 6-10:30pm), as well as the closing party at the Dog and Duck Pub (Saturday, November 3rd, 5-8pm).

Registration is free for all UT students and faculty.  Walk-in registrants welcome.

Conference response papers and a full schedule of conference events are available on the conference website:  http://www.flowtv.org/conference/overview/.

Hope to see ya’ll there!
