116th Annual Conference - Bellingham, Washington
Friday, November 9 - Sunday, November 11, 2018

Voice Studies

Presiding Officer: 
Carole-Anne Tyler, University of California, Riverside

The Voice Studies session is open to papers that explore the voice broadly defined, but we are especially interested in proposals on some facet of the conference theme, "Acting, Roles, Stages." Possible topics include voice actors and acting; ventriloquism, puppetry, acting, and "acting out"; the disciplinary (or performative) production of the voice; voice and gendered, racialized, or sexualized identities and performances; voices beyond meaning (whispers, shouts, scat, babble, sobs, laughter); public and private voices; the voice, love, and desire (the beloved voice); speaking silences; fake voices; auditory hallucinations; sync, lip sync, and the voice; and grating voices.

Closed (not accepting submissions)
