CALL FOR PAPERS
This volume will deal with all aspects of sound (including dialogue) and music as they have been utilised in comedy film. Authors are invited to write on any subset of the comedy film from the post-War period, including black comedy, romantic comedy, slapstick, dialogue comedy, parody and spoofs. Essays will explore the way in which music and sound articulate humour, create comedic situations and direct comedic identifications for viewer/listeners. Chapters dealing with theoretical concerns, historical studies, non-Western film or ‘sound auteurs’ are also most welcome.
We invite proposals of up to 300 words for chapters of between 5,000 and 8,000 words. Proposals should be sent to Mark Evans at mark.evans at mq.edu.au by 1 March 2009. Completed chapters will be requested by 1 November 2009. Please note that acceptance of the proposal does not guarantee publication and all chapters will be subject to normal processes of peer review.
