The availability of digital tools has made it easier than ever to record and edit sound, and teachers of composition have noticed. We record sonic texts for our students, and we give aural assignments in many genres: audio essays, podcasts, sonic remediations, interviews, radio shows, think-alouds, experimental pieces, and much more. We're entering an age of soundwriting, where the affordances of sound intersect the pedagogies and practices of writing and rhetoric.

Entangled Poetics: Mediating Ecology (NeMLA 2016) Sept 30 Deadline

This panel means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary American poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow's notion of entanglement, i.e., a "condition of overlapping recurrences," the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena. It thus brings occurrences together through affinity and disjunction alike and offers a powerful paradigm to think about mediation in relation to complex networks and loop interactions.
