The Sounds of Vision: Spectatorship and Aural Perception

The musical score, dialogue, and sounds of contemporary screen based
products of the past ten years have addressed a far more aurally
aware spectator, as demonstrated by the increasing complexities of
style and construction of the sound track. What might be some of the
methodological approaches that can account for the direction of the
spectatorial eye via the ear?

Superhuman, Supernatural, Superlative, or Simply Super Entertainment? :
Contemporary forms and conditions of entertainment media

Materiality aside, the entertainment media possess a refractory
nature: they are often obstinate, stubborn, wayward, perverse, and
disobedient, refusing to be pinned down by critical responses that
seek to homogenize their nature. For this special issue of the
Refractory Journal, we are interested in critical and theoretical
discussions of the forms / conditions / relationships of contemporary
entertainment media products / industries that may include films,
comic books, computer games or theme parks.

theological, philosophical, and poetic writings. The volume, however,

reflections on gender were always mediated through her diverse set of
