Call for Papers & Submissions

NOTE – The deadline for the submission of proposals has now passed. The CfP below is to be considered for reference only.

13th Screenwriting Research Network International Conference

“Pushing Boundaries”

Oxford (UK), 30 August – 1 September 2021

The 13th annual International Conference of the Screenwriting Research Network (SRN 2020) will be hosted in Oxford (UK) on Monday 30 August through Wednesday 1 September 2021.

The deadline for the original CfP (Round 1) was in December 2019. Shortlisted papers were announced at the end of January 2020 and we had just started the registration process last March when the decision was made to postpone the Annual Conference to 2021.

As detailed in the Postponed to 2021 section in this website, and as announced via email, delegates who had been shortlisted for SRN2020 will be accepted for SRN2021 by default. However, please note the following:

  • The revised format of the conference (which will revert back to the traditional 3 days instead of 4 as originally planned) means that we will be able to accommodate a maximum of 108 papers (TBC) as opposed to the 120 shortlisted this year. As a result we might have to revise our original decision and withdraw acceptance of a few papers.
  • On the other hand we are aware that this might not be necessary after all. Throughout Autumn 2020 we will contact all shorlisted delegates individually to assess everyone’s plans under current circumstances – aware that this process may still take several months to complete and that eventually some colleagues might not be able to attend anymore.
  • Should the number of delegates who can still make it to SRN2021 drop below 108, we will consider posting a second CfP (Round 2) with a new deadline TBD.
