CALL FOR PAPERS
The fourth annual conference, Music and the Moving Image, encourages submissions from scholars and practitioners that explore the relationship between music and the entire universe of moving images (film, television, iPod, computer, video games, and interactive performances) through paper presentations and plenary sessions. This year two keynote addresses, Philip Tagg, Univ. of Montreal (Kojak: 50 Seconds of Television Music; Ten Little Title Tunes) and Caryl Flinn, Univ. of Arizona (Strains of Utopia; New German Cinema) will be presented. In addition, a screening of Peggy Stern's Chuck Jones: Memories of Childhood with a discussion about animated films will be a featured part of the Saturday evening program. Streaming video versions of presentations will be available only at NYU from May 29 - June 1, 2009. Accepted papers will be considered for inclusion in the peer-reviewed online journal Music and the Moving Image: http://mmi.press.uiuc.edu/
