The Media and Cinema Studies program and the Cinema and Interactive Media school at DePaul University are hosting a one-day celebratory colloquium for the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who on Saturday, May 04, from 9-6. This event will feature roundtable discussions of scholars and fans to speak about the impact of the show in various arenas as well as screenings that span the half-century history of Doctor Who. The emphasis of the colloquium will be the cultural importance of Doctor Who.
The audience for this event is both graduate and undergraduate students, both fans and scholars, and the focus should be on informed and enlightening discussion rather than formal academic papers. “The Celebration of Doctor Who” will take place on DePaul’s Loop campus.
If you’re interested in speaking on a round table, please send a 250 word abstract of your topic and a CV or resume to Paul Booth (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Mar 15. Also please email Dr. Booth with any questions. We hope that you will be able to join in the discussion and celebration!
