Special Events Organized by the Local Arrangements Committee
Anthropology of Sound Forum
Admission is included with registration for the SEM Annual Meeting.
The forum is intended to advance dialogue in the anthropology of sound, promote transdisciplinary perspectives in sound studies, and build stronger institutional relationships between SEM and AAA. Bringing together researchers from diverse disciplinary locations, the forum will encourage participants to critically examine the conditions that inform research around sound and music, and consider how different disciplines approach method, analysis, knowledge, and representation. At the same time, the forum reflects anthropology’s renewed engagement with ethnomusicology, pointing to a rich shared history of ethnographic attention to practices of embodied performance, recording, and listening.
