Meeting Description:

One-day research workshop: 'Working with Sound: Language, Music, and Beyond...'

Oxford, 5 March 2011

Do you work on speech or music? Does your research involve sound recordings? Then this workshop is for you!

Deadline for abstract submission: 15 December 2010

There are many disciplines that work with sound. Each has developed its own set of methodologies over the years, often developing quickly with rapid advances in technology. The aim of this workshop is to bring together Oxford researchers who work on sound from different theoretical and methodological perspectives. The workshop will consist of several keynote lectures and a poster session.

Call for Papers:

Deadline for abstract submission: 15 December 2010

The workshop is primarily aimed at post-doctoral researchers, but we also welcome posters from advanced DPhil students and senior researchers. We will also offer limited number of places to researchers from outside Oxford.

We welcome posters from researchers in any department whose work is related to sound to present a poster. The posters will be displayed throughout the day and the participants will also be offered 5 minutes to give a brief oral presentation.

Some of the topics we expect to discuss are:

How do sound patterns relate to social meanings, ideologies, identities, divisions, and solidarities?

How are rhythmic structures best described?

How can one compare two recordings and describe similarities and differences and what novel methods can be borrowed across disciplines?

Along with these more theoretical questions are common methodological concerns:

How can researchers make the best use of recordings in current projects, and how can we best collect and store the audio data for further research?

If you would like to present a poster, please send a short abstract to sound_dayphon.ox.ac.uk.

Important dates:

Deadline for abstract submission: 15 December 2010
Notification of acceptance (for abstracts outside Oxford): 15 January 2011
Deadline for registration (free): 31 January 2011
Workshop: 5 March 2011
