Conference: ‘Listening Cinematically’ 25-26 Royal Holloway, University of London
‘Listening Cinematically’ is an interdisciplinary conference held at Royal Holloway, University of London, on 25-26 June 2015.
The two-day event — supported by the British Academy and by Royal Holloway’s Humanities and Arts Research Centre (HARC) — aims to explore the nature of cinematic listening and the relationship between listening practices inside and outside the movie theatre. In particular, it seeks to engage with the following themes:
• The history of the cinema as a place for listening
• The way specific filmic texts and film genres structure listening
• Listening ‘cinematically’ outside the cinema
There is an exciting lineup of presenters from musicology, film and media studies, drama and art history, including: Emilio Audissino, Jeremy Barham, Martin Barker, Julie Brown, Jim Buhler, Warren Buckland, Beth Carroll, Ian Christie, David Code, Nicholas Cook, Kevin Donnelly, Peter Franklin, Simon Frith, Jonathan Godsall, Guido Heldt, Julie Hubbert, Anahid Kassabian, Jean Ma, Miguel Mera, Martin Parker, John Richardson, Katharina Rost, Ben Winters and Gavin Williams.
