Sound in Theory, Sound in Practice

Apr 7, 2016 - Apr 8, 2016
Bard College

Sound in Theory, Sound in Practice brings together scholars and practitioners to consider the potential of thinking about and through sound. Recent years have witnessed a sonic turn in the humanities and beyond. Many working in the fields of anthropology, literature, urban studies, history, media studies, and the arts have increasingly shifted their attention to sound as both an expressive medium, a material, and a critical object of inquiry. Under the auspices of Experimental Humanities and the Sound Cluster at Bard College, this two-day symposium will focus on questions of aurality, transmission, aesthetics, and evidence. Open and Free to the Public. Registration required at http://blogs.bard.edu/soundsymposium.

Wave Farm Radio and WGXC 90.7-FM are pleased to provide an online stream, a future radio broadcast, as well as audio archives of much of this two-day symposium. Please click on the AUDIO and TUNE IN headers below for audio archives and broadcast schedules.
