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?

The 4th Annual English Graduate Student Association Conference
Georgetown University
February 21, 2015
Keynote address by Jed Esty, PhD

Deadline for Proposals: December 31st, 2014

The middle passage, the passage of time, a secret passage. Passing as straight, the passing of a loved one, just passing through. Passages and acts of passing often involve movement and transformations that cross — and sometimes blur — traditional boundaries of place, time, identity, or perspective. This conference will explore how and why passages and passing occur, what they entail, and why they matter.

Scientists have declared that we are in living in the Anthropocene, an age in which human behavior and actions are massively altering the ecosystems of the earth. Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen claims that whereas humans once saw themselves as "rebels against a superpower we call 'Nature,'" now "we are taking control of Nature's realm, from climate to DNA. We humans are becoming the dominant force for change on Earth."
