Deadline extended: CFP: Special Issue of Performance Matters Sound Acts: Unmuting Performance Studies
Deadline: Full submissions by 31 May 2019.
This special issue of Performance Matters places theater and performance on the map in sound studies by tracing out how sound acts. “Sound acts” underscores how sound inaugurates bodies and power, and how bodies and power in performance produce meanings and significations for sound. For this special issue of Performance Matters, we solicit scholarly essays, sonic performance scripts, interviews with or manifestos from sound artists and practitioners that investigate sound as an aesthetic possibility and mode of resistance for minoritarian subjects. Our publication will be field defining in coalescing the sonic reverberations emerging in theater and performance studies.
