Sound Matters

Essays on the Acoustics of German Culture

Nora M. Alter (Redaktør) ; Lutz Koepnick (Redaktør)

«<p> <i>“This volume is a most welcome contribution to an area of inquiry the editors concede as been slow to flourish in German Cultures Studies…the polished and thought-provoking essays in this anthology will lead readers to begin hearing things differently in their own research and teaching.”</i><b>  ·  German Studies Review</b></p>»

Explores the role of sound in modern and postmodern German cultural production. Working across established disciplines and methodological divides, this volume investigates the ways in which texts, artists, and performers have utilized sonic materials, in order to enforce or complicate dominant notions of German cultural and national identity.
