The 2018 Flow Conference opening night screening, “TV Treasures from Texas Archives,” will feature rarely seen television artifacts preserved by The Texas Archive of the Moving Image (TAMI) and the Harry Ransom Center including clips from Mr. Adams and Eve, a CBS sitcom from the 1950s starring Ida Lupino, and The Court of Last Resort, an early true crime television series co-produced by Erle Stanley Gardner. We are thrilled to have Dr. Afsheen Nomai, Technical Director of TAMI, and Ancelyn Krivak, Archivist with the Harry Ransom Center, as guest curators and presenters.

In line with this year’s conference theme, preservation, precarity, and praxis, our featured roundtable will focus on how different scholars incorporate praxis into their teaching, research, criticism, and activism. We are lucky enough to have Dr. Aymar Christian, Dr. Lori Morimoto, Dr. Christine Becker, and Dr. Randolph Lewis as our roundtable participants. Each panelist will prepare a brief, informal statement on how they incorporate praxis into their work, followed by a roundtable discussion and a broader Q&A session. Dr. Suzanne Scott and Jacqueline Johnson will moderate.
