Dear Screen L participants,
I’m writing to mention some new work in audiovisual studies, and request
leads for materials.
Audiovisual studies appear to be expanding (the American Musicological
Association <http://www.ams-net.org/> just added an interest group on the
topic, for example). Music-video scholarship too may be undergoing a
resurgence. Rutgers U Press recently published Steve Shaviro’s Digital
(and I think would be happy to see receive some reviews). Bloomsbury's
<http://www.bloomsbury.com/uk/musicvideo-9781501313929/> will be available
this August. Holly Rogers, Lisa Perrott, and and I are editing a series for
Bloomsbury called New Approaches to Sound, Music, and Media. My
Overwhelming Opus; or, the Past and Future of Music Video,"
Film Criticism, attempts to sketch the history of the genre.
I’m contributing a chapter on fake news and audiovisual media for a
forthcoming collection. I'd be grateful if you'd forward any links,
particularly to politically-engaged work. James Buhler and I are assembling
a collection on cyberfilms, biometrics, big data, and AI. If you’re
interested in participating, especially using quantitative approaches,
please send me a note of interest.
