Call for Papers: Rock Music on Film and Video Conference

We invite panel and individual-paper proposals for the Rock Music on Film
and Video Conference, to be held at Plymouth State University (Plymouth,
New Hampshire) October 10-11, 2008.

The members of the conference committee are seeking contributions that
examine the diverse uses of rock music in noteworthy cinematic and
televisual artifacts, from any historical era and from any area across
the globe. Possible topics include (but are certainly not limited to)
film sound and the cinematic star vehicle; rock music as subject; rock
and music videos; direct cinema, cinema verite, and the “rockumentary”;
the rock musical; and rock music as soundtrack and genre device.
Participants are encouraged to interpret the conference theme broadly and
innovatively. Individual presentations will be limited to 20 minutes in

We encourage submissions from scholars, educators, and students at all
levels, and from disciplines including anthropology, communication,
cultural studies, film studies, history, LGBT studies, media studies,
popular culture, sociology, and television studies. Given adequate
participant interest and high-quality submissions, we intend to publish
selected papers (with author’s permission) in a special anthology
pertaining to the conference theme. As a bonus, please note that the
conference dates correspond with the ideal time to enjoy New England’s
breathtaking fall foliage!

Persons submitting individual-paper proposals are asked to submit a one-
page abstract with complete contact information (name, institutional
affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, daytime telephone number). Panel
proposals (featuring three paper-presentations total) should include
panel title, brief description of panel theme, name of the panel chair,
one-page abstracts of each paper in the panel, and complete contact
information for each presenter on the panel (name, institutional
affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, daytime telephone number). In
order to be considered, all proposals must be received no later than July
7, 2008.
