Call for Papers

The Soundtrack is seeking proposals for guest-edited volumes, contributions to themed issues and article submissions for upcoming issues. The Soundtrack is a cross-disciplinary journal which brings together research in the area of sound and music studies in relation to film and other moving image media. Drawing on a range of critical traditions such as Film Studies, Media Studies, Musicology and Cultural Studies, as well as interactive and emerging media, the journal welcomes articles that address a diversity of topics and which contribute to the development of this increasingly important field of study. We encourage writing that is accessible to audiences from a diversity of intellectual backgrounds and disciplines as well as providing a forum for practitioners. Contributions are invited on topics such as, but not limited to: histories of sound design in narrative cinema; sound and music in video games; mobile media and interactive platforms; early film sound and music practices; sound and music in television; studies of composers and music supervisors; sound effects and genre; film music and emotion; acoustic ecologies; studies of noise, environments and soundscapes in media; trends in audiographic criticism; and sound art. The Soundtrack’s aim is to nurture this expanding area of academic investigation in dialogue creators of sound and music of all kinds.

Full articles should be 6,000-8,000 words in length. All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.
