The Singing Voice in Contemporary Cinema‏

November 12th, 2013 · Comments Off

Call for chapters
The Singing Voice in Contemporary Cinema
Diane Hughes & Mark Evans (Eds.)

The Singing Voice in Contemporary Cinema will be the seventh volume in the Genre, Music and Sound series (Equinox Publishing). Equinox’s Genre, Music and Sound series extends the discipline of screen soundtrack studies by addressing a series of popular international film genres as they have developed in the post-War era (1945-present); analyzing the variety and shared patterns of music and sound use that characterize each genre. This seventh volume will focus on the singing voice in contemporary cinema from 1945 to the present day, and rather than being restricted to one particular genre, will consider how the singing voice has helped define and/or confuse genre classification.

    Call for papers
    Cultural Appropriation in the Age of Social Media
    African Studies Association UK’s Biennial Conference (ASAUK)
    University of Sussex
    9-11 September 2014

    In recent years, social media have played a significant role in catapulting relatively obscure artists or cultural phenomena to international fame, seemingly overnight. The promise of Web 2.0 is that anyone with access to the Internet can find audiences and markets. The spontaneous uptake of memes on social media platforms seems to prove this. Likewise, we have seen South African bands, such as Die Antwoord, rise to fame via social media. [Read more →]

    Call for papers
    Metal and Marginalisation: Gender, Race, Class and Other Implications for Hard Rock and Metal‏
    Centre for Women’s Studies and the International Society of Metal Music Scholars
    University of York, UK
    11 April 2014

    Since the rising dawn of metallectualism, heavy metal scholars have acknowledged metal’s capacity to creatively explore forms of individualism, alterity and otherness. Further, metal frequently casts itself as a marginalised group in mainstream society, with fans and musicians often revelling in their outsider status which is reinforced by references to non-conforming traits (Satanism, for example).
