What futures can be articulated through sound?
For the Brazilian journal Revista Música, two great colleagues in the field of sound studies, Rui Chaves and Pedro Oliveira, have conceived a Call for Papers for a special issue that delves into all the issues related to this question.
They ask in their CfP:
“What speculations can be woven to reposition a critique and historiography still obsessed with a fascist and violent futurism whose Eurocentric framework is often ignored?
What future(s) exist or may come to exist in:
– propositions and analyzes of listening situated in indigenous knowledge, from the diasporas, and from the ante- and anti-colonial movements;
– listening to and with subjects beyond the human (non-human and more-than-human);
– listening beyond the ear and in dialogue with the so-called “Deaf and disability studies”;
– listening beyond the body, or beyond the idea of the body as a colonial and colonized object;
– listening from/in the periphery, in the processes of (im)migration, and other listening located on the margins;
– listening as a political tool in uprisings and insurgencies in Latin America and in the so-called “Global South”;
– other propositions for border listening, relational listening, threshold listening.”
In addition to traditional formats, the editors encourage the submission of artistic and multi-sensory works (accompanied by a short abstract of up to 500 words).
***Submission deadline: 15 October 2023***.
Contributions can be written in Portuguese, English, French or Spanish!
