IAMCR calls for academic audio/visual work to be presented at the IAMCR Beijing conference, which will be held online from 11 to 15 July, 2022. The conference will also have a national hub at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

The deadline to submit was 9 February. The results of the peer review will be announced by 31 March

With this call, IAMCR aims to stimulate the use of a broader range of modes for the communication of academic knowledge, complementing conference papers and oral presentations with audio/visual work. In particular, we seek podcasts and videos that integrate academic and aesthetic dimensions, and that use sound and/or image creatively to communicate academic knowledge. This implies that we will not select audio/visual work that merely consists out of recorded lectures.

We call for audio/visual work with a maximum duration of 30 minutes, but shorter contributions are welcomed. 

Proposals for presentation of audio/visual work will consist of one abstract, which will have two parts, namely an academic description of the work and a (basic) script of the audio/visual work. The academic description describes the research communicated by the audio/visual work (its research question, theoretical framework, methodology, research design, and corpus, …), while the script provides a chronological description of the form of the audio/visual work.

Guidelines for abstracts

The abstract (with its two parts) has a maximum length of 750 words. Submissions of proposals for audio/visual work will follow the regular timetable for submitting proposals to the IAMCR conference. This means that abstracts must be submitted before 9 February 2022 at 23.59 UTC. 

The abstract (with its two parts) should be submitted online at https://iamcr2022.exordo.com. The Flow34 evaluation team will review the submitted proposals, announcing their decisions on 15 March 2022. The audio/visual work itself will then need to be submitted on 7 June 2022.

Examples of earlier audio/visual work, presented at IAMCR conferences (in an earlier Flow34 or in a Visual Culture Working Group panel), are:
