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?

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.

"Hearing and Speaking the Middle Ages: Orality and Aurality in Performance and Text" 27-29 March 2015

Oral practice was a widespread mode of cultural consumption in the Middle Ages. From troubadour chansonniers, to the itinerant Japanese biwa hôshi and court poets like the Anglo-Saxon scopas, to the carnivalesque festivals of the Feast of Fools, speech and song illuminated the public and private lives of men and women throughout the medieval world. Even in the highly literate codicological culture of scriptoria, hearing and recitation were indispensable tools for understanding and producing the manuscripts we study today.

The symposium would like to pose a broad range of possible topics on the social, political, ethical, and aesthetic purposes of oral culture and its contexts.
