Important – Please Note: The ethos of the ‘Fear, Horror and Terror’ project has always emphasised dialogue with the issues raised by the conference as a whole and engagement with the people attending the conference. These two elements are essential to the inter- and multi-disciplinary nature of the event. Over the past few years the success of our projects has rested on the continual interaction between delegates for the duration of the conference and beyond. The Steering Group feel it is essential that delegates should be present for the duration of the conference so as to facilitate the exchange of perspectives for which the conference strives, and which any publication should clearly demonstrate. Failure to attend for the duration of the meeting will automatically exclude eligibility for inclusion in any of the project publications.
Papers should be of no more than 20 minutes duration (3000 words max). Responses to Papers should be of no more than 10 minutes duration. Work-in-Progress presentations should be of no more than 15 minutes duration. The time allotted to workshops will be considered on an individual basis. Other forms of presentation will be considered on request.
Please note: Text based PowerPoint (bullet-point style lecture) presentations are neither encouraged nor desired; indeed, text-based projections have been banned from all the projects we organise. However, digital projectors can be made available solely for the purposes of displaying images, which are desirable for the purposes of illustrating some presentations. The digital projectors can be hooked up to your lap top. You are advised to take note of this as you prepare your submission. Presenters are also strongly encouraged not to read their papers verbatim: draft papers will be available on the web site prior to the conference beginning for all delegates to review We hope that presenters will instead speak to the significant points raised in their papers from notes or a script.
Abstracts are to be submitted by Friday 22nd March 2013. These should be emailed either as an attachment or in the body of an email to all Organising Chairs: Shona Hill, Shilinka Smith, and Rob Fisher. Attachments may be in Word, WordPerfect, or RTF formats. Papers will be minimally double blind peer reveiwed (where appropriate); in practice our procedures usually entail that by the time an abstract is accepted, it will have been triple and quadruple blind peer reviewed.
Both the 300 word abstract and the draft paper will be available on this web site before the conference commences. Papers will be available in downloadable .pdf format.
Selected papers may be invited to go forward for development into 20-25 page chapters for publication in a themed ISBN hard copy volume. Our standard model is for such volumes to be strongly dialogical, with chapters showing awareness of and interacting with each other. The decision whether to proceed to hard copy publication will be taken by the Organising Chairs and Steering Group within two weeks of the conference close.
In preparing your draft papers and submissions, please pay strict attention to the following style sheets
