Call for Papers: Music and the Moving Image

CALL FOR PAPERS 2022

MUSIC & THE MOVING IMAGE CONFERENCE XVIII

ONLINE Conference at New York University: 26 – 29 May, 2022

Update: Due to New York University’s protective Covid-19 protocols, the 2022 MaMI Conference will be held entirely online. While we had hoped to host an entirely in-person conference, our successful experiences with running the past two MaMI conferences as virtual events means that we are fully adapted to hosting an efficient, compelling, and—dare we say—engaging event in an online modality. We look forward to offering a dynamic program of panels alongside multiple opportunities for participants to connect virtually with one another.

The annual Music and the Moving Image Conference invites abstracts for paper presentations that explore the relationship between the vast universe of moving images (film, television, streaming media, video games, and advertisements) and that of music and sound. We encourage submissions from scholars and practitioners, as well as from multidisciplinary teams that have pooled their knowledge to solve problems or to develop new perspectives regarding the relationship between music and moving images. Abstracts will be selected based on their originality, relevance, significance, and clarity of presentation.

Keynote Address: TBA

Keynote Panel: The Life and Legacy of Danijela Kulezic-Wilson

Paper abstracts (up to 250 words) should be submitted no later than 17 December, 2021, via this link: https://form.jotform.com/212974970168164
