*OUR CALL FOR PAPERS HAS ENDED*
For the past few years, we have seen the development and appearance of research departments, books, journals and other forms of scholarship and institutional endeavours dedicated to what we now know as sound studies. This encompasses the study of warfare and politics of sound; cultural and technological critiques; sound art and associated praxis; urban phonography and acoustic ecology; sonic epistemologies; new musicology and historically situated reflections.
In this sense, we feel that is high time to promote work done both nationally and in Latin America. In doing so, we hope to establish fruitful dialogues with researchers coming from other parts of the world, and create a platform for an interdisciplinary, deconstructive and archaeological approach that expands the discussion on the above thematics.
The terminology of sound studies itself – ‘SONOLOGIA’ – here reflects the local academic culture and our interest in having in this event (besides the already above mentioned), researchers from different areas of study: music technology; anthropology; philosophy; gender studies; cultural, performance and media studies; experimental, popular and contemporary music.
Themes and topics
The ‘out of phase’ theme, while referring to a technical and theoretical jargon in sound, encompasses a strong metaphorical stance towards the need to incorporate views that are of out-of-sync or in opposite polarity regarding a possible familiarity in contemporary sonic theory and practice. Thus, we are inviting submissions that can refer to, but are not limited to, the following topics:
Individual papers and presentations
As stated above, we wish to bring a diverse of range of researchers, coming from different disciplines and locations in order to present original scholarship from a multi-vocal and global framework. All proposals will be submitted to a review process by an appointed scientific committee.
Please submit your extended abstract (in English) of max. 1 page full and half (A4) and a short bio (50 words) no later than June 19th (extended deadline), 2016 by 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time (GMT -3) via firstname.lastname@example.org. Please allow 24-48 hours for confirmed reception.
Selected presentations will need to submit camera-ready papers (in English) by October 16th with a provided (by us) ODT/ MS Word templates (max. 7000 words in A4 format).
Selected submissions will be published in the conference proceedings, under an ISSN reference and archived using the OJS platform.
After the conference, 12 papers will be considered for a special edition of Interference: A Journal of Audio Culture, guest-edited by Rui Chaves and Lílian Campesato.
We are open to different types of presentations, that reflect the critical and creative necessities of theoretical or practice-based research. The official language of the event is English, although simultaneous interpreting – regarding English to Portuguese – will be available to all. In certain cases, the presenters may request simultaneous interpreting for Portuguese to English.
