Sound Studies and Methods Working Group #GCDISound

The Sound Studies and Methods working group is a network of CUNY students, faculty, and staff who are interested in sharing theories, methods, and techniques related to doing qualitative and quantitative research, teaching, storytelling, and creating art with sounds and audio files, and finding resources and support from others to do so. The group is open to scholars from all disciplines to explore ways that we as researchers and makers can study and use sound in our scholarship and pedagogy.

The Sound Studies and Methods working group is part of a GC Digital Initiatives program designed to create collaborative communities of Digital Fellows, CUNY-wide graduate students, staff, and faculty to meet regularly and share their areas of interest. The working groups provide a sustained, supportive environment to learn new skills, share familiar skills, and collaborate with both the Digital Fellows and the CUNY digital community.

Members of the group are encouraged to share their projects, ideas, and questions concerning studies and uses of sounds and audio technologies through this group. This group was created after the success of the 2017-2018 GC Digital Initiatives Sound Series: a series of talks and workshops on topics related to sound analysis, comparison, theory, production, and recording — learn more about the past series at: cuny.is/gcdisound and on Twitter following the hashtag #GCDISound.

If you are analyzing, theorizing, producing, recording, or sharing sounds or audio as part of your teaching and/or research, or if you are interested in learning more about different methods for sourcing or creating sounds for storytelling, podcasting, sensory ethnography, artistic exhibitions, or oral history projects, or managing, coding, or archiving copious audio files, we invite you to join the Sound Studies and Methods working group.
