The Soundtrack Album: Listening to Media (edited collection)

We invite new work that will deepen and expand the discourse about
soundtrack albums. The soundtrack album endures across decades, formats
(vinyl, 8-track, cassette, compact disc), and delivery systems (radio,
physical media, online, streaming services). Perhaps the most obvious, and
yet under-examined, media paratexts, soundtrack albums have never simply
promoted a Broadway show, film, television program, video game, comic book,
or recording artist. Rather, they directly shape our understanding,
enjoyment, and criticism of the media texts they accompany. Soundtrack
albums are themselves complex media texts whose production and reception
require careful analysis.

We seek a global address of soundtrack albums and contributions from a
multi-disciplinary slate of authors, including children’s media scholars,
musicologists, sound studies scholars, and media industry scholars. Authors
are invited to consider the history of soundtrack albums, and how artists,
industries and listeners continue to use, define, and create such audio

For consideration, please provide a brief bio and 400-600 word proposal via
this Google form: no later than
August 1, 2017. Please contact Paul N. Reinsch ([log in to unmask]) or
Laurel Westrup ([log in to unmask]) with any questions.

thanks much,
