Society for the Academic Study of Social Imagery

SUBMISSION DEADLINE EXTENDED TO FRIDAY, JANUARY 17, 2020 - EMAIL ABSTRACTS TO SASSI@UNCO.EDU

It is with sadness that we announce 2020 will be our FINAL conference. Institutional budget cuts, the proliferation of for-profit conference mills, and reduced professional development funds nationwide, mean that our friendly little boutique conference can no longer self-sustain. Please join us for our 2020 swan song professional gathering. 

Sponsored by the University of Northern Colorado School of Communication, the Society for the Academic Study of Social Imagery (SASSI) has hosted an interdisciplinary conference every March examining thematic imagery in literature, media, and society.  Each year brought a new theme and an exciting new array of presentations and conversations from participants nationwide.
