Differentiating Sound Studies: Politics of Sound and Listening

Keynote Speakers:

Following the success of “Rethinking Sound 2018,” Music Research Center at Hanyang University is pleased to announce its second international conference “Differentiating Sound Studies: Politics of Sound and Listening,” to be held on 15–16 April 2022 in Seoul, Korea. In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the conference will be hosted in a hybrid format.

We invite proposals on any topics in the area of sound studies. We are particularly interested in themes relating to various ways in which sound makes differences in society and culture. How do class/stratum, gender/sexuality, and generational/regional differences manifest themselves via sound? What do they sound like? In relation to these questions, we also interrogate how techniques of listening are mediated by technology today, and what that relationship brings to the world.

For more details, please refer to Call for Papers.

“Differentiating Sound Studies: Politics of Sound and Listening” is supported by the Ministry of Education of the Republic of Korea and the National Research Foundation of Korea.
