The Sound and the Humanities Research Cluster is hosted at UBC Vancouver, which is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. The land it is situated on has always been a place of sounding and learning for the Musqueam, who for millennia have passed on their culture, history, and traditions from one generation to the next on this site.
The Cluster seeks to provide an intellectual and collaborative space for UBC scholars and creators working in the field of humanistic sound studies. In addition to supporting collaboration and interdisciplinarity in scholarship, event planning, and creative endeavours, the Cluster encourages resource sharing, promotes relevant scholarship and pedagogical practices, and prioritizes the training of emerging scholars.
- February 29, 5-6:30PM: Prof. Tamara Mitchell, UBC. “Sound Unseen: Auscultating Gendered Violence in Mexican Fiction.” Followed by Q&A and catered reception. See Events for more abstract!
