Music and the Moving Image XIV




Conference at NYU Steinhardt: Friday May 31st – Sunday June 2nd

The annual conference Music and the Moving Image encourages submissions from scholars and practitioners that explore the relationship between the entire universe of moving images (film, television, video games, iPhone, computer, and live performances) and that of music and sound through paper presentations. We encourage submissions from multidisciplinary teams that have been pooling their knowledge to solve problems or come up with a new perspective regarding music and moving images. The Keynote Speaker is TBA.

Abstracts or synopses of papers (250 words) should be submitted by no later than December 15, 2018. You can submit via Qualtrics by clicking this link:

Press), Jessica Getman of University of Michigan (“A Series on the Edge: Social Tension in Star Trek’s Title Cue.” Society for American Music 9:3.
