Jonathan Sterne has written, "Sound studies should be a central meeting place where sonic imaginations go to be challenged, nurtured, refreshed and transformed." Sound+ offers a space to pursue this goal among other individuals who are interested in exploring this exciting and emergent field of study. In addition to the work of our invited speakers during our conference, Sound+ would like to extend this meeting place to researchers across disciplines.

Feeling in Place (ACLA 2014, March 20-23, NYU)

Sunday, October 6, 2013 - 1:40pm
Lily Cui / American Comparative Literature Association

What does it mean to feel in place? This panel proceeds from the premise that feeling's aesthetic and rhetorical modalities, conditions of ethical engagement, and world-making vocation are predicated on the "places" that enable feeling's emergence, transmutation, and deployment toward particular political agendas or aesthetic regimes. To feel in place thus carries two discursive dimensions. On the one hand, it may designate the ways in which "uncontrollable" feelings, as in the disruptive re-sentiments against colonial discourses, or "out-of-place" feelings amongst the racialized Other, are put "in place" through various means of formalization, such as the closure of subjectivity or objectification through appeals to the discourses of law and science.

"It's the remix to ignition, hot and fresh out the kitchen..." – R. Kelly, "Ignition"

"It's taking little pieces from here, adding it to little pieces from there—as many different disparate elements as you can find—and make something totally new out of it." – DJ Shadow

Panel for ABRN Conference, 8-10 Dec 2014

Saturday, October 5, 2013 - 7:11pm
Asian Borders Research Network

We are proposing a panel " Imagi(n)ing The Nation: Maps, Borders, Cartographies " in the upcoming ABRN Conference to be held in Hong Kong during 8-10 December 2014. Maps and borders are always contingent entities and those who inhabit those spaces pitch themselves as a nodal point of (op)positioning with respect to identity-contentions among different other 'imagined communities'. While the 'nation-state', as often been argued, is an overtly restrictive projection of a model derived from western European experience onto the non-West where it seldom applies, this panel seeks to understand the disjunctive temporalities and multiple vernacular iterations that render the map/border perceptible.
