Journal of Sonic Studies 13 – Call for Papers
After special issues on listening, sound and television, sonic
epistemologies and methodologies, sound design, sounds of/in space, a
pervasive sound narrative, urban sound art, and South-East Asian
soundscapes, it is time for an open CfP.
For the thirteenth issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies we invite
theorists and artists to submit complete articles on any aspect of
auditory culture. Possible topics may include, but are not limited to,
the history of auditory culture, the ontology of sound, the epistemology
of sonic studies, the possible (interdisciplinary) approaches to
productively study auditory culture, and the specificity of sonic studies.
We are searching for scholarly and artistic contributions that deal with
the relation between the production, distribution or reception of
sounds, noises or silence and history, culture, society, ethics,
technology, religion, art, new media or politics. The broader aim is to
establish “sound” as an analytical category that provides us with
challenging perspectives on and a new understanding of contemporary culture.
Potential contributors are invited to submit completed essays by
August 31, 2016.

The Journal of Sonic Studies is a peer-reviewed, online, open access
journal providing a platform for theorists and artist-researchers who
would like to present relevant work regarding auditory cultures, to
further our collective understanding of the impact and importance of
sound for our cultures.
The editors welcome scholarly as well as artistic research and also
expect all contributions to have a firm theoretical grounding. Priority
is given to contributions that explicitly use the Internet as a medium,
e.g. by inserting A/V materials, hyperlinks, and the use of
JSS invites potential contributors to use the Research Catalogue as the
platform in which the submission is presented (see
http://www.researchcatalogue.net/). Other submission guidelines can be
found at sonicstudies.org/guidelines
