IMS Study Group Music and Media
„Music on Small Screens“
11-13th July, 2013 – Carleton University, Ottawa, Canada
Deadline: 15 March 2013
The IMS Study Group Music and Media (MaM) will hold its fifth international meeting in Ottawa at Carleton University, the first time in North America. Over the course of the last two decades, the dominance of the large cinematic screen has gradually eroded in favour of smaller formats for the consumption of screen media. In recognition of this development, the 2013 MaM meeting will focus on „Music on Small Screens,“ with a keynote address by Karen Collins (author of Game Sound and Playing with Sound). Papers that address music and sound in one or more of the small screen media/formats, whether for example television, video games, YouTube, tablets, smart phones or PSP, are especially welcome.
Proposals on other aspects of Music and Media will also be considered, with the following areas of particular interest:
- Music and cinematic paratexts
- Music and/or/as sound in screen media research
Karen Collins (University of Waterloo), author of Game Sound (2008) and Playing with Sound (2013)
Anahid Kassabian (University of Liverpool), Claudia Gorbman (University of Washington Tacoma), Emile Wennekes (Utrecht University), James Deaville (Carleton University), Michael Saffle (Virginia Tech), Paul Théberge (Carleton University)
Proposals for 20-minutes papers are welcome from academics (faculty and students) and practitioners alike. Each submission should include the following information: author name, academic affiliation, e-mail address, title of presentation, abstract (300 words max.), a short CV, and a list of technological requirements (power point, CD player, etc).
All proposals must be submitted by 15 March 2013 to: e.wennekes at uu.nl
