The Auricle event is the second in the Sound Cultures/Sound Studies series that commenced in 2009 with Terpsichorean Architecture, convened by Dr Tony Mitchell. In 2010, the event is co-hosted by the Transforming Cultures Research Centre in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at UTS and Screen Sound: The Australasian Journal of Soundtrack Studies, and co-convened by Prof Anne Cranny-Francis (UTS) and Dr Rebecca Coyle (Southern Cross University). Focusing on sound and cultural transformation, the event highlights both the analytical and transformational possibilities in sound studies.
The Auricle event will explore five main themes:
- Performative voices
- Music/sound and transformation
- Screen(ing) sound
- Writing sound
- Hearing/Listening as research method
The event welcomes 20-minute paper, roundtable or panel proposals from sound studies researchers from various disciplines. Papers may be selected for a special journal issue based on the conference themes.
