FRANCO-SCREENS Listserv Instructions and Guide
FRANCO-SCREENS (FRANCO-SCREENS@LISTSERV.UC.EDU) is a list dedicated to academic conversation about French and Francophone screen studies. It is hosted by the University of Cincinnati. Contact email@example.com with any questions or issues.
Things to post on Franco-Screens
We imagine this partly as a Francofil for film, TV, and screen studies in particular, plus a place for more interactive discussions between French and Francophone screen scholars, teachers, and students. If you are here just for the announcements and prefer to not be included in discussions, you can sign up for the daily digest delivery format (instructions below). Please share your: -book or article publication announcements -conference CFPs -event announcements and reminders -news about screenings, filmmaker visits, and other happenings that might be accessible to other institutions -queries, inquiries, ideas regarding teaching and research in the francophone screen studies realm -calls for panel participants -other stuff that comes to mind and seems reasonable -job announcementsgrad program recruiting pitches
