5th June 2024, University of Brighton 12th June 2024, The London School of Economics About the Events In a collaboration between the University of Brighton and The London School of Economics, two successive Sonic Rebellions symposiums are bringing together sonic rebels to offer new perspectives on power, justice, and the role of sonic practices in solidarity, resistance and oppression. The Sonic Rebellions network comprises activists, academics, and artists asking: What is the relationship between sound and social justice? Continuing to build these connections, we welcome proposals on any aspect of sound and social justice from a range of research disciplines. Themes may include, but are not limited to: · Sonic methods and resistance in warfare · Music and its political implications · Rap music beyond the archive · Decoloniality and acoustic equality · Abolitionism and the policing of sound · Popular music, gender and knowledge The first symposium will be hosted at the University of Brighton, followed by the second hosted at the London School of Economics. The events encourage proposals that may deviate from or innovate traditional conference styles. We are particularly interested in presentations or workshops which incorporate an interactive or audio element (within the scope of a standard AV set up). The invitation especially extends to PhD students, early-career researchers and practitioners. We are currently accepting proposals that would be held online. However, please note that in-person presentations will be prioritised. The symposium at the University of Brighton is supported by the Centre for Applied Philosophy, Politics and Ethics (CAPPE), and the symposium at The London School of Economics is supported by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
