The conference features:

·         Live performances and ongoing audiovisual installations

·         Keynote address by Steven Feld,Relational Borders: Cartographies of Urban (Un)sounding.”


Co-Sponsored by NYU Department of Anthropology, the Avery Fisher Center for Music & Media, and the Office of the Dean for the Humanities
