SOUNDSITES: Experiments in Sound and Place (Public Art Dialogue) 
Submission Deadline: August 1, 2018
Guest Editors: Charles Eppley & Åsa Stjerna

For this issue, the editors invite critical articles, artist essays, and other writings that examine the topic of sonic public art from broad aesthetic, interdisciplinary, or cultural perspectives. Ideal articles will provide unique views on artists, artworks, and practices that employ sonic materials, methods, and concepts to engender encounters with public space. This issue will provide an overview of the fields of sonic art, historical and contemporary, from the theme of place and re-contextualize the aesthetic, discursive, and cultural frames of ‘sound art’ to include individuals, concepts, and practices that have been marginalized by disciplinary methods, narratives, and epistemologies. We are especially interested in articles that identify, analyze, and theorize sonic public art from critical vantages that challenge existing narratives and Western perspectives on art and music. In addition to formal and aesthetic inquiries, authors are encouraged to connect sonic public art to social, political, and economic paradigms that address how the processes of institutionalization, commodification, and mediation have affected public art-making in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Possible topics include: sound sculpture; sound installation; environmental art; performance art; new music; environmental music; Fluxus; Minimalism; acoustic ecology; digital listening; noise pollution; queer sound; gender, race, identity and the cultural politics of listening; sonic protest; sonic weapons; acoustic architecture; accessibility and disability; diasporic sound and global listening cultures; and sonic urbanism (e.g., the sounds of revitalization/gentrification).
