Department of Gender & Women’s Studies Distinguished Lecture
The Screen in Sound: Toward a Theory of Listening

Rey Chow, Anne Firor Scott Professor of Literature in Trinity College of Arts and Sciences, Duke University

This lecture is drawn from Rey Chow’s chapter in the anthology Sound Objects (Duke UP, forthcoming), ed. James A. Steintrager and Rey Chow. By foregrounding crucial connections among sound studies, poststructuralist theory, and contemporary acousmatic experiences, the lecture presents listening as a trans-disciplinary problematic through which different fields of study resonate in fascinating ways.
