The Anthropology of Sound

A Special Forum Organized by

The Society for Ethnomusicology

and

The Music and Sound Interest Group
American Anthropological Association


at

The SEM 61st Annual Meeting
Friday, November 11, 2016

Omni Shoreham Hotel
Washington, D.C.

 

The Society for Ethnomusicology and the Music and Sound Interest Group of the American Anthropological Association have joined together to organize an Anthropology of Sound Forum at the SEM 2016 Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The forum is intended to advance international dialogue in the anthropology of sound, promote interdisciplinary perspectives in sound studies, and build stronger institutional relationships between SEM and AAA. Bringing together sound researchers from diverse geographic and disciplinary locations, the forum will encourage participants to consider how sound informs questions of method, analysis, knowledge, and representation. At the same time, it will encourage anthropology’s engagement with ethnomusicology’s rich history of ethnographically attending to practices of embodied performance and listening.

Anthropologists, ethnomusicologists, and others with an interest in sound studies are strongly encouraged to attend not only the Anthropology of Sound Forum but the entire SEM Annual Meeting (November 10-13) and a pre-conference symposium ("Soundings: Public Sector Ethnomusicology in the 21st Century") organized by the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress on November 9. Admission to the Anthropology of Sound Forum is included in the SEM 2016 Annual Meeting registration fee.
