Call for Sounding Out

Sounding Out 4 - an international symposium on Sound in the Media - is calling for papers and presentations

Sounding Out returns to University of Sunderland’s Media Centre in September 2008, hosted by the Centre for Research in Media & Cultural Studies. The conference aims to promote links and dialogue between practitioners, students and academics concerned with SOUND as communication, entertainment and creative practice across various media: including film, radio, television, video, audio-books, electro-acoustic music, sonic art, new digital media and computer games. Sounding Out 4 is particularly interested in the twin themes of sound and memory, sound and history, but these are by no means exclusive say organisers. The deadline if you'd like to present a paper is 14 March 2008. Send your abstract of no more than 150 words to John-Paul Green, SOUNDING OUT 4, The Media Centre, Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s, St Peter’s Way, Sunderland, SR6 ODD, United Kingdom or email
