Sound has always been a method of understanding the world around us, and literature of various forms and time periods has attempted to capture such soundscapes. This panel hopes to explore sound in text in greater detail, raising questions of structure, as well as nationality, individuality, culture, and memory within the American literary realm and American history more broadly. The category "soundscape" could include music, narrative explorations of sound, sonic landscapes, and dialogue, among others, and papers might discuss technical or structural renderings of sound, symbolic usages of sound, or sound as a contributor to other theoretical concepts.
