CFP: [General] Sound, Silence and Literature

Garrett Stewart in Reading Voices: Literature and the Phonotext writes:
“When we read to ourselves, our ears hear nothing. When we read, however,
we listen.” Whether it is listening to one’s reading voice, music, film or
drama - audition plays a central role in how we engage with art. This
interdisciplinary symposium invites papers that explore the ways in which
sound and silence are formally manipulated and represented in art. While
vision has been the dominant mode for understanding truth and knowledge in
modernity, this one-day symposium will examine alternative narratives that
reveal the cultural significance of auditory perception.

"Every individual human being, one may say, carries within him,
potentially and prescriptively, an ideal man, the archetype of a human
being, and it is his life's task to be, through all his changing
manifestations, in harmony with the unchanging unity of this ideal."
    --Friedrich Schiller, Letters on the Aesthetic Education of Man (1795)
