2019 CFP: Sonic Topographies
Music and Sound Studies Network of the German Studies Association
The Music and Sound Studies Network of the German Studies Association (GSA) invites proposals from scholars for panels at the 44th Annual Conference in Washington, D.C. from October 1-4, 2020. We welcome proposals that consider the many ways that sound reflects, delineates, complicates, crosses, and interacts with natural and constructed spaces related to German-speaking communities throughout the world. The network encourages scholarship from a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches and welcomes projects that focus on noise and sound as much as on music. Some potential considerations that may guide abstract submissions are:
· How sound marks or reflects rural, suburban, urban, and natural culture
· How sound mediates or guides movement through a specific site
· How sound participates in the construction of virtual topographies in
various media forms
· How sound migrates, crosses boundaries, or articulates transnational
· How sound might help theorize ideas about space, identity, and
· How sound installations impact the experience of the physical qualities
of a space.
Deadline: Wednesday, January 15, 2020.
