Journal of Sonic Studies 13: Call for Papers


“After special issues on listening, sound and television, sonic epistemologies and methodologies, sound design, sounds of/in space, a pervasive sound narrative, urban sound art, and South-East Asian soundscapes, it is time for an open CfP.

For the thirteenth issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies we invite theorists and artists to submit complete articles on any aspect of auditory culture. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to, the history of auditory culture, the ontology of sound, the epistemology of sonic studies, the possible (interdisciplinary) approaches to productively study auditory culture, and the specificity of sonic studies.

We are searching for scholarly and artistic contributions that deal with the relation between the production, distribution or reception of sounds, noises or silence and history, culture, society, ethics, technology, religion, art, new media or politics. The broader aim is to establish “sound” as an analytical category that provides us with challenging perspectives on and a new understanding of contemporary culture.”


Potential contributors are invited to submit completed essays by August 31, 2016.
