Seminar on Film and Music

The Centre for Popular Culture Studies (PoCuS) cordially invites all colleagues to a seminar on film and music.

Music have always been an important part of film and television. Original scores, pop songs, and the use of music to tell stories and thematize characters have often been combined with political use of music throughout history. In this seminar three prominent scholars present their innovative work on music in film and television, from Children’s films, over the grand old man of soundtracks, John Williams, to the use of politicised music and images in music videos on MTV in the 1980s.
