About Us


Launched in 2022 by three collaborators from Hispanic Studies, Film Studies, and the School of Music with generous support from the Public Humanities Hub, the Sound and the Humanities Research Cluster is an interdisciplinary group of scholars, creators, and educators working at the intersection of sound and humanistic inquiry. With a shared interest in attuning to the role of sound and listening in knowledge systems, political subjectivities, aesthetic practices, and human relations, among other topics, the Cluster aims to provide opportunities for collaboration, conversation, training, and knowledge acquisition and production. We invite you to join us in tuning in to the myriad potentialities of sound in social and cultural analysis.

The Sound and the Humanities Research Cluster forms part of the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, which is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. We are humbled and grateful to be able to think and collaborate as uninvited guests on Musqueam land.
