Founded by a group of feminist media scholars and artists in 1989, Console-ing Passions held its first official conference at the University of Iowa in 1992. Since that time, the conference has created collegial spaces for scholarly and other creative work on culture, identity, gender, and sexuality in television, digital and aural media, and gaming.
The organizers of the 2013 conference sought proposals for individual papers, pre-constituted panels, or workshops on the broad themes of culture, identity, gender, race, class and (dis)ability in television, digital and aural media and gaming.
We considered papers which address the broader aims of Console-ing Passions: identity, difference, otherness, gender, race, class, (dis)ability, sexuality in relation to television, digital and aural media, gaming, social and network media.

This two day conference, run by the Photographic History Research Centre with support for the Economic History Society, explores photography’s business history, from the organisation and work of photographic studios and their clients, to industrial and marketing practices.
The history of photography has largely been dominated by concerns about aesthetic production and its political framings. Such ‘art historical’ approaches have marginalised the study of the economic base of the medium manifested through a developing photographic industry, its related trades and its mass consumers. Work is now emerging in this field, scattered across a number of disciplines: history, anthropology and history of science in particular. While there has been extensive research on both the politics and the affective qualities of popular photography, family albums, for instance, the missing component in the analysis is often a detailed and empirically informed understanding of the social and economic conditions of product development, labour forces, marketing and consumer demand. This two-day conference brings together a critical mass of research in this area, to explore the state of play in this overlooked but crucial aspect of history of photography, and to suggest new directions for research in the economic, business and industrial history of photography. The conference explores the period 1860-1950: from the rise of a clearly defined photographic industry, which had a profound effect on the practices and thus social functions of photography, to the expansion of mass colour technologies.
