13-14 octobre 2017, University of Minnesota
Organized by the Music and Sound Studies Interdisciplinary Student Group
University of Minnesota
Keynote Speakers: Charles Hirschkind and Emily Dolan
As a way of knowing and interacting with the world, techniques of listening constitute a wide range of socially and historically circumscribed practices that shape our subjective positions and collective identities. Techniques of listening orient the ear and represent sound in distinct and often contradictory ways.
Techniques of listening are bound up in the materials and instruments we listen with and to, but they are also found in the ideologies and cultures that define, use, and misuse sound and music. With this conference, we wish to shed light on the aesthetic, scientific, technical, legal, medical, historical, social, cultural, religious, and philosophical ways of listening as they pertain to any kind of music and/or sound.
We welcome submissions on, but not limited to, the following:
• Practices, theories, and methodologies of listening
• Epistemologies and ontologies of sound
• Intersections of gender, class, and race
• Sound, deafness, and disability
• Politics and ethics of music, sound, silence, and noise
• Music and sound in film
• Literature and the arts
• Sound and embodiment
We especially welcome to submissions from graduate students and early career scholars.
We welcome proposals for individual papers, panels, and roundtables. See website for submission details.
Proposals should be submitted by June 1, 2017 for review. Please send proposals to mss -at- umn.edu.
