BIMI Funding to present in Pittsburgh – deadline end of July

Opportunity to present research at Pittsburgh Graduate Student Conference 30 September-1 October 2016

As part of Birkbeck Institute for the Moving Image’s collaboration with University of Pittsburgh, we are proposing for the second year running to help fund two Birkbeck research students who would like to present their research at the Pittsburgh Film Studies Graduate Student Conference, 30 September-1 October 2016.

The theme of this year’s conference is “All in the Family: Theorizing Incest and/as Media Erotics” – see attached call for papers. Please note that the deadline for Birkbeck students proposing papers is the end of July (not 10 July as stated in the document).

Although the conference is run by Film Studies research students at Pitt, they are very open to film and media related proposals coming from any field or discipline. So please feel free to put your project forward, regardless of the department or school in which you study at Birkbeck.

If your paper is chosen for the conference, BIMI will subsidise your travel up to £500. Once you are in Pittsburgh, the Film Studies Graduate Student Organization (FSGSO) will undertake to look after you during your stay.

The call for papers asks you to submit your proposal directly to this address: – however, we would be grateful if you could copy your proposal to this address:
