Appel de conférences – colloque « Hidden Figures of Screen Music and Sound » – 3 avril 2020

Colloque d’un jour, « Hidden Figures of Screen Music and Sound », 23 juin 2020, Royal Holloway, University of London, organisé par Dr Lindsay Carter (University of Bristol), Dr Rhys Davies (Royal Holloway) et Dr Jonathan Godsall (Royal Holloway).

« Much current academic and cultural discourse is rightly devoted to questions of representation, and to exposing structures of inequality. Recent scholarship on screen music and sound specifically has begun to shift focus away from star composers, sound designers, and directors towards less celebrated individuals. This one-day conference aims to bring together scholars from screen studies, sound studies, and musicology who are working on similar ‘hidden figures’ in the production of music and sound for screen media.

We invite 20-minute papers that address one or more of the following themes:

  • The work of individuals from communities underrepresented in the screen-music and screen-sound industries (e.g. women, people of colour, LGBTQ+ people).
  • The work of individuals in less visible screen-music and screen-sound production roles (e.g. arrangers, orchestrators, music supervisors, foley artists, location sound recordists) – and the creative duties and contributions of those roles more broadly.
  • Industrial and critical processes of marginalization (e.g. in hiring and marketing). 

The conference will conclude with a panel of industry figures, who will discuss the nature of their work, the paths of their careers, and their perceptions of issues of diversity and recognition in the industry. We expect the full registration fee for the conference (including lunch and refreshments) to be £20. Reduced rates will be available to students/unwaged and BAFTSS members. »
