CfP: “Soundscapes of South-East Asia”

Das “Journal of Sonic Studies” bittet um Beiträge jeglicher Art zum genannten Thema. Deadline für Einreichungen ist der 06. Januar 2016.

Hier folgt der gesamte Ausschreibungstext:

“*JSS Call for Papers: Soundscapes of South-East Asia*

Music, radio, and TV broadcasts; blaring loudspeakers, public
announcements, and street conversations; city sounds, sounds of
progress, sounds of revolution, or sounds of change; sounds deliberately
produced or emerging unintentionally, serving a disciplinary function or
expressing forms of freedom; musical as well as non-musical (functional)

South-East Asia is filled with sounds; indeed, some people would say
that it is a noisy part of the world. However, is it possible to
identify a specific South-East Asian soundscape? And if so, where are
the roots to be found, and how did these sounds achieve their current form?

The /Journal of Sonic Studies /is searching for scholarly and artistic
contributions that deal with the relation between South-East Asian
history, culture, society, and politics and the production,
distribution, and reception of sounds, noises, and silence. The broader
aim of this special issue is to establish “sound” as an analytical
category that provides us with challenging perspectives on and a new
understanding of South-East Asia. Therefore it does not focus on any
particular historical period or research methodology, but seeks to bring
scholars and artist-researchers together who share an interest in
South-East Asian soundscapes.

*Themes for submission may include but are not limited to:*

-The sonic identity of any South-East Asian space

-Differences between Western and South-East Asian soundscapes

-South-East Asian (contemporary) sound art

-The role, position, and function of music in contemporary South-East
Asian societies

-Sonic histories of South-East Asia

-Listening cultures of South-East Asia

-Politics of sounds or the sounds of politics in South-East Asia

-The role of silence in South-East Asian societies and/or discourses

-The role of sounds in South-East Asian religions

-Rural “versus” urban soundscapes
