CFP: Eye Tracking the Moving Image - Edited Collection

Printable version Thursday 02 July 2015 Last updated at 12:15

We are inviting 500 word abstract submissions for a proposed anthology edited by Tessa Dwyer (University of Melbourne), Claire Perkins (Monash University), and Sean Redmond (Deakin University).

The anthology will explore the ways in which eye tracking technology offers academics and practitioners new and innovative ways to assess and understand viewer engagement with moving images. Inter and cross-disciplinary in approach, the editors seek submissions that either directly employ eye tracking technology in their empirical research or that assess its usefulness and limitations for the study of moving images and their audiences.

The anthology will be divided into three distinct sections: eye tracking aesthetics; eye tracking environments; and eye tracking intersections, where text, viewers and environment are brought together under one articulating set of forces. We would ask you to indicate in your submission which section your proposed chapter is intended for.

The editors’ welcome abstracts that address (but need not be restricted to) the following themes:

Eye Tracking Aesthetics
