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

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.
