More than Meets the Ear - Sound & Short Fiction

updated: 
Wednesday, May 29, 2019 - 11:58am
University of Vienna (Austria)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, June 15, 2019

Sound is being celebrated as a source of insight in the humanities. Foregrounding the sense condemned to play second fiddle by Plato, scholars are tapping into sonic, auditive and aural phenomena and their technological reproduction, mapping practices of sound production, exploring soundscapes of different periods, compiling cultures and histories of hearing and listening. Some publications in this vibrant field focus on voice/s, others explore the theorisation, representation and political (re-) evaluation of noise/s or investigate how hearing may interact with vision, touch, taste and smell.
