[ecrea] Call for proposals: Music in Silent Film, Routledge collection

Tue Oct 13 18:32:56 GMT 2015

Call for proposals
Music in Silent Film
We are putting together a proposal for a volume in Routledge’s Music and Screen Media series. Proposals for chapters under any of these four broad headings would be welcome:
1.	Historical
2.	Infrastructure & Technology
3.	People: Composers & Practitioners
4.	Case Studies
The editors would particularly welcome relevant contributions about women’s work in the industry. The remit of these volumes is to bridge the gap between Film Studies and Film Music studies. Although very technical musical treatments are avoided, some chapters in the series include music examples.
Routledge describes the series as follows:
“The scope of Music and Screen Media includes music in particular genres of cinema, television, video games and new media. This Series welcomes scholars from across the disciplines of music and film studies … to propose edited essay collections that will be accessible to students and scholars in the rapidly expanding field of music and screen media.

Each book in the Series has an introduction by the editor and eight to twelve original essays at approximately 5000 words each. The introduction provides an overview of the genre of media under question and also traces the general chronological development, highlighting trends in musical styles and the composers most associated with that media. The books will be small (circa. 250 pages), inexpensive, so they can be freely assigned in the curriculum.”

Proposals should include the following: a chapter title, a brief abstract (150–200 words), and a concise curriculum vitae outlining education, previous publications, and professional experience.
Deadline for proposals: 9 October 2015
