SOUND & MARX

updated: 
Wednesday, November 26, 2014 - 9:47am
full name / name of organization: 
POLYGRAPH/Duke University

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?

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.

On March 19-20, 2015, Penn English will host Locating Post-45, a conference organized around the periodizing category of the Post-1945. A term that has emerged as an organizing principle for twentieth-century literary studies, we want to probe its curious, and perhaps provisional, durability. The conference would like to generate new considerations of the locations and worldedness of Post-1945 by examining its ever-branching critical crosscurrents.
