The UCHRI working group Counter-Production: Noise as Critical Research will be hosting several events across the UC’s this year that critically engage the field of Sound Studies through interdisciplinary research. Taking up the negative powers of noise, we argue that its disruptive, illegible and unintelligible attributes produce a critical lens for understanding sound’s interaction with the material world, literature, and cultural production in general. Join us on October 20-21 at UCB for our first series: Disruptive: Noise as Material.
