How do studies in the sonorous or sounding world resonate with the invisible architectures of an impending digital and networked culture?
What new texts may support our understanding of sound in the future?
How does sound play a role in our embodied experiences of the social and environmental movements of today? 

Join reading group core members in discussing a prepared selection of texts that will explore these questions through the lens of practices, metaphors and philosophies in contemporary sound studies.

Following this, on Dec 9, Doug Van Nort will lead a soundwalk and Deep Listening workshop. We will meet at York’s Keele campus.
