“Sound Bridges, Sound Walls” conference in Hilversum

February 22, 2011

A few months ago, I posted the call for papers from the first joint conference of the Vereniging Beeld en Geluid and the Studienkries Rundfunk und Geschichte.  It has been a bit of a ride putting it together due to a range of unforeseeable cicrumstances, but it is my very great pleasure to announce it is really and truly happening:

Sound Bridges, Sound Walls

Annual Conference of the Studienkreis Rundfunk und Geschichte

and the Vereniging Beeld en Geluid

in co-operation with the Institute for Sound and Vision, Hilversum

The area of sound studies has broadened greatly over the last decade, opening up new narratives in social, cultural and media history. In this symposium, we focus this renewed interest in sound specifically on the historical role of broadcasting, understood here as programme-oriented auditive or audiovisual distribution. In particular, papers have been accepted that help us to consider the role of broadcast sound in constructing and/or transgressing borders and boundaries.
