Next Destination: MECCSA Conference, Newcastle upon Tyne, early January 2015

Yesterday, I received a great news from MECCSA (Media, Communication, and Cultural Studies Association), the biggest association in the UK related to respective disciplines. The first paragraph already revealed it all:

"The organisers of the MeCCSA 2015 conference are pleased to confirm that your proposed panel has been accepted. If you are no longer able to attend, we would be grateful if you could let us know as soon as possible"


Yes, I am organizing a panel with my fellow colleagues, Alicia Izharuddin, Eric Sasono, and Tito Imanda. The title of our panel is " Postcards from Indonesia: Unexplored cross-generational Issues in Genres and Screen Practices".  The conference will be held in Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne, 7-9 January 2015. I will discuss the details once everything is fixed. And, of course, I will still present a topic related to cult, exploitation, and B Movies from Indonesia's New Order (1979-1995).

And finger crossed for the PhD bursaries.
