Screen Sound Journal
Vale Rebecca Coyle
It is with great sadness that we inform you that our Editor, Associate Professor Rebecca Coyle, passed away on the 11th of November 2012. Rebecca had been unwell for some time and her last moments were spent with family and close friends in a room full of flowers.
Rebecca’s contribution to the area of screen sound research was far reaching, this journal is but one gift she has left us, amongst many books, articles and conference papers.
We would like to assure you that Screen Sound Journal will continue in its current form, with Alex Mesker as Site Editor and Sarah Keith and Natalie Lewandowski as Acting Editors. We plan to run the next two issues with guest editors in place before a strategic direction on the Editor position is decided.
Our next issue will be a tribute to Rebecca and feature responses to her work as well as her final article. A Call for Papers is currently being drafted and will be circulated once ready. Following this, we will run an issue on Game Sound, guest edited by Dr Sarah Keith – preparations for this issue are already underway.
We are so glad Rebecca got to see the latest issue of the journal (released earlier in November). Screen Sound Journal was very important to Rebecca and its position as the only screen sound research journal focused on Australia, Aotearoa/New Zealand and Oceania is something which we feel is of significant and continuing value to academia. As the editorial team, we look forward to sharing Rebecca’s passion and enthusiasm for Screen Sound Journal for years to come.
Natalie Lewandowski, Sarah Keith and Alex Mesker
