Call for papers: Sonic methods in human geography. Royal Geographical Society with Institute of British Geographers (RGS-IBG) Annual International Conference, 1-3 September, 2010, London. Date limite 22 février 2010
Un appel pour les cressoundiens!!!!
The proposed session seeks to bring together researchers who are actively using sound to explore geographical issues. The session aims to provide a platform for methodological development to complement the growing interest in the geographies of sound and music (e.g. Anderson et al, 2005; Cameron and Rogalsky, 2006; Wood et al, 2007). We particularly encourage proposals which will involve novel or experimental uses of sound in their presentation at the conference. We would also welcome contributions from researchers and practitioners in other disciplines whose work has geographical relevance (e.g. sound artists, experimental musicians, anthropologists, musicologists, sociologists, architects, etc).
We are looking for papers that address, though aren’t limited to:
• Sonic research methods: soundwalking; deep listening; multi-sensory ethnography; acoustic mapping; sound design and architecture; acoustic ecology; field recording; sound art and experimentalism.
• The interface between academic research and creative practice in the sonic arts.
• Cartographies of sound and other forms of representing sound.
• Experimentation with different forms of sonic dissemination: blogs, podcasts, performances, radio broadcasts, electronic journal articles with embedded sound.
