CFP: Proposed panel on Voice and Modernist Spectacle

MSA 14, Las Vegas (Oct. 18–21, 2012)



Visuality and visibility are central to definitions of spectacle; however,
spectacles are rarely silent or voiceless. This panel will consider
modernist spectacles wherein voice plays a primary or significant role,
whether in concert with or separate from the visual and other senses.



Possible topics might include, but aren’t limited to:



—Modern sound technologies and technologized voice.

—The modernist sensorium; modernism or modernity and the senses.

—Embodied and/or disembodied voice in film or theater.

—Voice and political spectacle.

—Spectacles of failure: faltering or weakened voice, “choking,” blundering.




If interested, please send a 250-word abstract and a brief (2-3 sentences)
scholarly bio by April 1, 2012 to Sara Bryant at slb4ca at virginia.edu.
