SoundEffects - An Interdisciplinary Journal of Sound and Sound Experience


SoundEffects is an open access, international, peer-reviewed journal on sound and sound experience operating on the Open Journal System. SoundEffects brings together a plurality of theories, methodologies, and historical approaches applicable to sound as both mediated and unmediated experience. The journal primarily addresses disciplines within media and communication studies, aesthetics, musicology, comparative literature, cultural studies, psychology and sociology. In order to push the boundary of interdisciplinary sound studies into new areas, we also encourage contributions from disciplines such as health care, architecture, and sound design. As an international journal taking a humanities-based interdisciplinary approach to sound, SoundEffects is responding to the increasing global interest in sound studies. One of the advantages of SoundEffects as opposed to paper journals is that we can offer authors the possibility to attach sound bites to their articles (please check the Author Guidelines).

 

The editors of SoundEffects: Iben Have, Birgitte Stougaard and Erik Granly Jensen.

 

The journal is supported by the following International Advisory Board: Michael Bull (University of Sussex);  Annabel J. Cohen (University of Prince Edward Island); Steven Connor (Birkbeck College, London); Nicholas Cook, (University of Cambridge); Christoph Cox (Hampshire College); Lydia Goehr (Columbia University);  Antoine Hennion (Centre de Sociologie de l'Innovation, Paris); Kathleen Higgins (University of Texas, Austin); Douglas Kahn (University of New South Wales, Sydney); Phillip Tagg (Universities of Huddersfield and Salford).

Call for abstracts: Voice and Memory

 

For this special issue of SoundEffects vol. VII, 2017, we invite scholars from a variety of disciplines to reflect upon the relationship between voice and memory. 

This issue of SoundEffects wants to challenge our notions of voice and of voice and memory in a very broad sense – by digging into the forgotten, overlooked and overheard (silenced) voices and the different aspects of the intertwined complexity and changes of the status of voice, technology, media and listening.
