The 2012 conference will take place September 12-14, and will be jointly hosted by King’s College London, Queen Mary, University of London and Kingston University.

This year’s event will feature a special screening and workshop at the BFI Southbank, to coincide with their Hitchcock Retrospective.
We are open to any topics on the subject but would particularly welcome papers relating to the films of Alfred Hitchcock.
Abstracts should be 200 – 300 words long and papers, including clips – which we strongly encourage – should not exceed 25 minutes. We accept panel submissions with a maximum of three speakers and a length of 90 minutes.
Fees will be announced shortly.
