ATLANTA—The College of the Arts and the School of Film, Media & Theatre congratulate Arzu Karaduman on being awarded the Provost’s Dissertation Fellowship. The fellowship supports doctoral students from across the university as they complete their dissertations and is awarded to candidates with outstanding scholarly accomplishments.
Karaduman is completing her doctoral degree in the Moving Image Studies program. Her dissertation, “Sounding Anew: Anasonicity in Contemporary Global Cinema,” investigates how radically disrupted synchronization demands new modes of listening in films. The dissertation explores anasonicity, or sonic experiments that blur the line between audible and inaudible, and generates new terminology to respond to these experiments in film.
