>Apologies for cross-posting.
>A reminder that registration is open for the Centre for Film Studies
>symposium Texture in Film¹, 9th March, 2013, University of St Andrews.
>To register for the event:
>Texture is more commonly discussed in relation to visual art and design,
>music and literature than film. In these other disciplines, texture may
>refer to the tactile quality of a surface, the way a surface is changed
>by light, paint or other materials, the composition of fabric or
>narrative (as in the root of the word, to make/weave), the pattern of
>sound (rhythm and register) and the concrete' properties of language
>(metre, diction, syntax). Texture also has an important sensory
>dimension: it expresses the feel of an object, surface or material, and
>thus offers a way of acknowledging the importance of decisions around
>formal properties to our responsiveness to film, and to its patterns, to
>its overall shape. Considering texture in relation to film involves
>attention to the fine detail of a film's realization, and offers the
>potential to enrich discussions of form and sensation in film.
>This symposium will seek to explore ways in which thinking about texture
>can reinvigorate discussion of film form across a variety of cinematic
>contexts, as well as research practices (such as archival or
>practice-based approaches); with particular emphasis on approaches drawn
>from understandings of texture originating in study of visual art, music
>The day will close with a roundtable event with an interdisciplinary
>panel, designed to extend the discussion of the day.
>Panelists: Alex Clayton (University of Bristol), Sarah Dillon
>(University of St Andrews), Ian Garwood (University of Glasgow) &
>Alistair Rider (University of St Andrews)
