Be sure to include the name of the theme week you would like to be involved with in the subject line of the email.

 

Academics, journalists, critics, media professionals and fans are all welcome to submit proposals.

 

The actual piece will include either a 30-second to 3-minute clip, an image, or a slideshow that will be accompanied by a 300 to 350 word response to/contextualization of your clip, image, or slideshow. In addition to the your piece, you will be expected to engage the other pieces presented that week to encourage discussion and further flesh out the individual topic in relation to the week’s theme.
