Theorizing Sound Writing

Date: May 2, 2017

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.

Participants include:

  • Deborah Kapchan — Associate Professor of Performance Studies, New York University
  • J. Martin Daughtry — Associate Professor of Music, New York University
  • Carol Muller — Professor of Music, University of Pennsylvania
  • Tomie Hahn — Associate Professor of Performance Ethnology; Director, Center for Deep Listening, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
  • Alex Waterman — Musician; Scholar; Author
