Co-sponsored by The California Endowment, KJAZZ Radio,, and the Santa Fe University of Art and Design, in past years Oscar, Grammy, Golden Globe, Latin Grammy, Emmy, ALMA, BET, and NAACP Image Award winners and nominees have joined international scholars from some of the world’s top universities as presenters and commentators.

The bulk of the presentations will take place September 2-3, 2016 at the Long Beach Convention Center. Presenters enjoy world premiere film screenings, forums, music showcases, panels, concerts, parties, and miles of beautiful beaches and picturesque harbors.

We welcome individual papers and full panels representing any topic (e.g. theory, production, history, criticism, preservation, etc.) related to music, film, television, mass communication, convergence, digital media, or the entertainment industry broadly defined.

We are also issuing a special call for papers interrogating or celebrating the themes: “Gender, Race, and the Music Industry” and “Young Men of Color in Film, Media, and Music.”
