CINDY Awards: International Entry Deadline

Nearly 58 years ago, OSCAR was being presented for the finest in feature films.  The EMMY Award continued to honor broadcasting program excellence.  The CINDY Award was presented for the first time to those producing informational content in 16mm film format.

When the Cinema in Industry (CINDY) Awards premiered in 1959, things were pretty straight forward.  But today, there are multiple delivery platforms and even more subject matter categories and applications for informational programming.  From webinars, infomercials and video games to online interactive training, commercials and phone apps, you can still find an appropriate spot at the CINDY Awards where your digital media production efforts fit right in.

If you craft words, images, sound effects and music into digital content that captures audience attention and delivers the desired outcome, there is room for your work at the CINDY Awards.  For information: on why you should participate this year and discover who has received the award in the past, click: www.cindys.com

CfP: 10th Global Studies Conference, National University of Singapore, Singapore 8-9 June 2017

Call for Papers

We are pleased to announce the Call for Papers for the Tenth Global Studies Conference, held 8–9 June 2017 at the National University of Singapore in Singapore.

Founded in 2008, the conference is held annually in different locations around the world, each selected for its particular place in the dynamics of globalization. Intellectually, the conference takes three steps: the first is a “this-worldly” step, mapping the details and extrapolating to big picture analyses in order to interpret what is at times challenging, dangerous, and excitingly positive about the “New Globalization.” The second step is to set this New Globalization in the context of earlier globalizations—what are the continuities, and what is genuinely new? The third step is to re-examine and redefine the very concept of globalization—in theoretical, anthropological, and philosophical terms. The conference works between the most fastidiously empirical and profoundly generalizing modes of engagement with one of the central phenomena of our contemporary existence.

We invite proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, colloquia, virtual posters, or virtual lightning talks. The conference features research addressing the annual themes and the 2017 Special Focus: “Global Mobilities.”
