SOUND & MARX

Since the 1970s, the critical and cultural interest in sound has largely eschewed the tendency to categorize the beautiful and proper into the binary categories of music and noise; instead, we find sound culture as more critically attentive to the world around us as a kind of buzzing confusion of sound. The ostensible goal of this critical gesture is to democratize our listening habits by loosening the term "music" from definitions of taste and value such that anything could be considered music to our ears. But, in material practice, has promoting a general theoretical rubric of sound run the risk of flattening the lived inequalities that produce differences in the production, distribution and reception of sound as music?

The mini track will focus on various aspects of entrepreneurship education and learning. Entrepreneurship education has exhibited a remarkable growing phase during the last decade as the majority of worldwide educational policies prioritize it. Nonetheless, the emerging educational research in the field appears with low impact amongst the rest entrepreneurial subjects. Entrepreneurship education faces difficulties due to its fragmented content and eclectic approaches. The field needs a reconsideration/evaluation for the adoption of robust teaching models and deep assessment of outcomes.

Subverting the State:
The Postcolonial Predicament
22 May 2015

University of Kent, Centre for Colonial and Postcolonial Studies

Keynote lecture:
Priya Gopal (University of Cambridge)

Since the birth of nation-states, emerging in conjunction with the first wave of globalisation and the height of European colonialism in the mid-nineteenth century, avant-gardists have problematized the role of the nation-state. However, as anti-colonial freedom movements often assumed a nationalist character, postcolonial studies has been preoccupied with understanding the historical significance and emotional force of the nation-state and devoted less attention to the movements and ideas that sought to subvert the state altogether.

Conference Theme--It's Only Natural(ism): Questioning and Responding to the Master Narrative of Late Modernity

April 9-11, 2015
Charleston Southern University
Charleston, South Carolina

Keynote Speaker: Roger Lundin, Wheaton College

Undergraduates thrilling to the bleak despair of Stephen Crane or Thomas Hardy are often excited to discover the existence of naturalism as a philosophy of life and a literary movement of great importance. They are quick to draw parallels to contemporary issues and controversies, for naturalism's reach is clearly not confined to the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
