Why did American campuses burst into protest in November 2015? And how have our universities responded? Building on "Campus Politics," a recent book by Jonathan Zimmerman, this panel will examine diversity, sexual assault, trigger warnings, and the wide range of other issues that have sparked campus controversy in recent years.

What promise does sound knowledge hold for cultural analysis? How might we not only write sound but sound theory differently? In addressing these concerns, the authors in Theorizing Sound Writing also make an intervention into the ethics of academic knowledge, one in which listening is the first step not only in translating sound into words, but in compassionate scholarship. As a method of inquiry, both listening and sound writing expand not only what is known but also how we come to know (and be) as public intellectuals and artisans of sounded, vibrating worlds.
