Edited by Carol Vernallis, Amy Herzog, John Richardson

Part of the Oxford Handbooks series


The Oxford Handbook of Sound and Image in Digital Media surveys the contemporary landscape of audiovisual media.

Contributors to the volume look not only to changes brought by digital innovations, but to the complex social and technological past that informs, and is transformed by, new media.

This collection is conceived as a series of dialogues and inquiries by leading scholars from both image- and sound-based disciplines.

Chapters explore the history andthe future of moving-image media across a range of formats including blockbuster films, video games, music videos, social media, digital visualization technologies, experimental film, documentaries, video art, pornography, immersive theater, and electronic music.

Sound, music, and noise emerge within thesestudies as integral forces within shifting networks of representation. The essays in this collection span a range of disciplinary approaches (film studies, musicology, philosophy, cultural studies, the digital humanities) and subjects of study (Iranian documentaries, the Twilight franchise, military combat footage, and Lady Gaga videos).

Thematic sections and direct exchanges among authors facilitate further engagement with the debates invoked by the text.
