THE CINE-FILES (www.thecine-files.com) is now accepting submissions (4000-6000 words) for the "Featured Scholarship" segment of Issue 8 (Spring 2015), a special issue on film sound.

Submission Deadline: February 30, 2015

Papers should make an argument about some aspect of cinematic sound. We welcome a diversity of methodologies. Though writing should follow traditional essay conventions (strong thesis, linear organization and development of argument), we encourage the use of embedded film clips, audio files, and/or images to support the paper's claims.

During the conference and within the context of culture and identity, well-known periods and moments of the history of music in the all possible meanings, forms and genres will be brought to the agenda and new areas of interest, that will be revealed by this perspective, will be explored on the basis of the main focus point as "Local versus Universal".
