Date & Theme Announced for “Doing Women’s Film and Television History VII”

The DWFTH biannual conference will take place on 18-20th June 2025 at the University of Lincoln, UK. Join us for this 7th iteration of the Doing Women’s Film and Television History Network conference.

The key theme of this year’s conference is ‘Entangled Media: Past and Present’ in and across women’s work in film, television and related media. The theme encourages exploration of the often complex processes by which film and television are made, distributed, seen and received across borders, be they geographical, cultural, ideological or otherwise defined.

The conference aims to explore various approaches to analysing women’s work in the global mediascape. It encourages the examination of overlooked voices, figures, pioneers, organizations and collaborations and the contributions women have made to transnational and transmedia production, circulation and consumption and their various entanglements. Our definition of ‘women’ is inclusive.

Following the success of the 6th conference at Sussex last year, this three-day event will again be in person and will welcome a variety of international scholars, practitioners and groups and promises meetings, gatherings and conversations within and outside the panels. The conference will be organised by Hannah Andrews, Jeongmee Kim, Diane Charlesworth and Frances Morgan from the School of Film, Media and Journalism.

The call for papers will be circulated in September.
