In recent years the field of sound and screen studies has witnessed an
extraordinary growth. The emergence of specialist journals such as The
Soundtrack and Music, Sound and The Moving Image, as well as a notable
number of theorisations of sound itself, testify to a dynamic field of
enquiry, encompassing an extraordinary diversity of practices,
approaches, applications and theorisations. This event seeks to chart
contemporary debates and to explore future avenues in individual
disciplines as well as in the increasingly innovative interstices and
overlaps between fields of enquiry.

Symposium fee (payable on the day):
£45 (£25 for students/unwaged)
Fee includes refreshments, lunch and an evening drinks reception.
