>This panel addresses the specific challenges faced by screen media
>(film, television, video, digital media) in representing the world
>through the moving image.  How have documentaries, fictional feature
>films, experimental works and video games found adequate rhetorical,
>narrative or poetic means to represent the complexity and totality of
>the world? In particular, the panel concerns itself with the
>relationship between how the world is imagined (as planet, globe,
>system, market, public sphere, empire, ecology or humanity etc) and
>the competing representational strategies available to mediamakers.
>How do images, words and data interact in these different conceptions
>of the world? Paper proposals on a wide range of media, historical
>periods and cultural contexts are welcomed.

>Please email a paper abstract (approx 300-350 words), a short
>bibliography (max. 6 citations) and a short bio by August 12, 2006 to
