Call for Abstracts: Sound and Senses, Vol 9, No 1 (2019)


We hear and listen using our auditory sense. However, it has been acknowledged within several disciplines from neuroscience to humanistic approaches that our sensory system is not isolated in single senses but is working as an ensemble. Especially the close relation between hearing and touching – the auditory and the haptic sense – has been of growing interdisciplinary interest within the last decade from different perspectives: sound studies, affect studies, perception and cognitive science as well as psychology and neuroscience. With this special issue on Sound and Senseswe would like to invite research within the frame of the journal’s general aim of taking a humanity-based approach to 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, Erik Granly Jensen, Thomas Bjørnsten and Vadim Keylin (editor of review section)
