With apologies for repeated and cross posting, We'd like to announce the
publication of two books, the Oxford Handbook of Sound and Image in Digital
Media, and the Oxford Handbook of New Audiovisual Aesthetics (Oxford
University Press). The handbooks' contributors hope to encourage new
research in audiovisual studies. Here are descriptions and lists of
co-editors and authors –

The Oxford Handbook of Sound and Image in Digital Media surveys the
contemporary landscape of audiovisual media. Contributors to the volume
look not only to changes brought by digital innovations, but to the complex
social and technological past that informs, and is transformed by, new
media. This collection is conceived as a series of dialogues and inquiries
by leading scholars from both image- and sound-based disciplines. Chapters
explore the history and the future of moving-image media across a range of
formats including blockbuster films, video games, music videos, social
media, digital visualization technologies, experimental film,
documentaries, video art, pornography, immersive theater, and electronic
music. Sound, music, and noise emerge within these studies as integral
forces within shifting networks of representation.


The Oxford Handbook of New Audiovisual Aesthetics offers new ways to read
the audiovisual. In the media landscapes of today, conglomerates jockey for
primacy and the internet increasingly places media in the hands of
individuals-producing the range of phenomena from movie blockbuster to
YouTube aesthetics. Media forms and genres are proliferating and
interpenetrating, from movies, music and other entertainments streaming on
computers and iPods to video games and wireless phones. The audiovisual
environment of everyday life, too-from street to stadium to classroom-would
at times be hardly recognizable to the mid-twentieth-century subject. The
Oxford Handbook of New Audiovisual Aesthetics provides powerful ways to
understand these changes.
