CALL FOR PAPERS

Words and Notes in the Nineteenth Century (London, 2-3 July 2007)

Focusing on a century that fostered a growth industry in musical writing
of many kinds (musical novels, programme notes, musical poetry, music
appreciation texts, journalism, scientific treatises, biography, etc.),
this conference seeks to address three main questions. How is music
conceptualized in various textual situations/locations between c.1789 and
1914? How can we best approach the relationships between music and texts?
In what ways might comparative study of different languages, genres or
cultural contexts help us explore the workings of word-music
relationships?

2007 Society for Cinema and Media Studies Conference
Chicago, IL
March 8-11, 2007

I am currently seeking papers for the following panel:

Queer(ing) Melodrama

Recent theories of genre encourage thinking of melodrama not as a singular
generic category, but as a sustained modality in all popular American films
(among other national industries). As such, melodrama would possess a
democratizing potential for personifying social forces within a visual realm, thus
contesting the ideologies and binaries that produce cultural "others."
