Sound Practices

This symposium will initiate the development of “the Sound Collaboratory,” a research project that will bring together faculty and students to create new creative partnerships on and off campus. The Sound Practices Symposium will convene established scholars as well as UW graduate students to share their insights on the innovative methods and practices they utilize to incorporate sound into their scholarship.


The activities specific to this research cluster entail three events over the course of the 2022-2023 academic year. Each quarter, a scholar will be invited to virtually present on a topic that relates to autoethnography. This method seeks to counter the biased pitfalls of an ostensibly objective researcher in ethnography by making them a central component of the research study.
