Star Voices: A one-day symposium on film star voices

01 Mar 2010

On Tuesday 30 March in the Martin Harris Centre

In film studies, stars are often defined primarily in terms of their image, an approach that crucially neglects the contribution of an actor's voice to their star identity and their appeal for audiences. This symposium seeks to build and advance research on film stars by inviting a range of film scholars, including some leading exponents of star studies, to address and examine the issue of the voice within the promotion, performance and critical reception of film stars (both historical and contemporary).

The day will include papers delivered by our keynote speakers but will also provide scheduled time in order to stimulate debate on issues raised by the papers and discuss avenues for further research. Manchester University Press has expressed an interest in a publication arising from this event.

The symposium is FREE but places need to be booked through the Conference Administrator. Please visit the website for more information.
