The Acoustics of the Social on Page and Screen, Hardback Book

The Acoustics of the Social on Page and Screen Hardback

Edited by Professor or Dr. Nathalie (Assistant Professor of American Studies, Catholic University Eich Aghoro



Sound positions individuals as social subjects. The presence of human beings, animals, objects, or technologies reverberates into the spaces we inhabit and produces distinct soundscapes that render social practices, group associations, and socio-cultural tensions audible.

The Acoustics of the Social on Page and Screen unites interdisciplinary perspectives on the social dimensions of sound in audiovisual and literary environments.

The essays in the collection discuss soundtracks for shared values, group membership, and collective agency, and engage with the subversive functions of sound and sonic forms of resistance in American literature, film, and TV.
