CfP: [sic!] (27 Aug to 7 Sept 2018) – Application for Sound Studies Seminar

[sic!] Summer Institute Cologne is looking for young scholars especially interested in sound:

We invite graduate and postgraduate students from Area Studies, Art History, Classics, Comics, Communication, Cultural Studies, Dance, English, Film, German, Japanese literature, History, Literary Studies, Media, Music, Performance, Sound, Theatre, and related fields to apply for this international interdisciplinary program. (All sessions will be conducted in English.) Participants and faculty of [sic!] 2018 will explore perspectives on the topic Construction Sites through three themed seminars:

  • Comics & Visual Narration (closed)
  • Theatre Historiography (closed)
  • Sound (still open until June 1)

Each seminar will be led by a pair of scholars from Northwestern University (Evanston, USA) and the University of Cologne (Germany). In addition to the seminars, [sic!] offers interdisciplinary academic workshops that allow for a dialogue with participants from across the seminars. Each participant enrolls in one seminar and one workshop, thus composing an individual study program. Seminars and workshops are enhanced by excursions, lectures by faculty, poster presentations by students, and social gatherings. The University of Cologne assists participants in identifying accommodation and with other basic logistics.
