Garrett Stewart in Reading Voices: Literature and the Phonotext writes:
“When we read to ourselves, our ears hear nothing. When we read, however,
we listen.” Whether it is listening to one’s reading voice, music, film
or drama - audition plays a central role in how we engage with art. This
interdisciplinary symposium invites papers that explore the ways in which
sound and silence are formally manipulated and represented in art. While
vision has been the dominant mode for understanding truth and knowledge
in modernity, this one-day symposium will examine alternative narratives
that reveal the cultural significance of auditory perception.

Acquisition in Early Modern England" to be held May 8 â€" 9, 2009. This is

specifics ends. Our panels may question how materials were borrowed,
stolen, restructured, reincorporated, and renovated in order to make new
meanings.
