Call For Essay Proposals - Listening Spaces: 21st Century Perspectives on Music, Technology and Culture (Deadline: Nov.1st)
full name / name of organization:
Professor Richard Randall and Professor Richard Purcell/Center for the Arts in Society, Carnegie Mellon University
Listening Spaces: 21st Century Perspectives on Music, Technology, and Culture seeks proposals for writings to be included in a volume of new critical essays. The Listening Spaces Project is funded by a multi-year grant in conjunction with Carnegie Mellon University’s Center for the Arts in Society (http://www.cmu.edu/cas/media%20initiave/listening%20spaces/index.html) and the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry (http://studioforcreativeinquiry.org/projects/listening-spaces.)
Our goal is to examine the multiple ways people listen to, consume, and produce music and sound in an increasingly digital world. Technologies such as social networks, recommendation algorithms, virtual cloud storage, and portable listening devices increasingly mediate both personal and communal experiences with music; while such technologies may be convenient, their unexamined use raises ethical, socio-political, and philosophical questions. The Listening Spaces anthology seeks essays engaging with these questions and others posed by emergent musical and social technologies.
The volume seeks essays in the following areas:
The volume’s editors will consider submissions across a range of writing styles and scholarly methods in order to achieve a collection of the most compelling and readable essays. Scholars at any rank, advanced doctoral students, journalists, and independent intellectuals are invited to submit.
Submissions: Send C.V. and 500 word proposal (with contact information) to Richard Purcell and Richard Randall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Deadline: November 1st, 2012
