Urban sound: an analysis of discourses constructed by sound studies

For several of the latest decades, the “sensory turn” in humanities and social sciences has marked a new stage in rethinking the roles of non-visual media (sounds, smells) and perception modes (auditory, tactile, olfactory). The present article pays special attention to the consideration of urban sound discourses that have formed within sound studies. Systematization of the existing literature shows several important themes describing sound in the city. These themes include: sound as the marker of identity, memory, power, socio-economic relations, etc. A complex coverage of discourses about urban sound permits broadening its comprehension limits.


Key Words: acoustic turn, sound studies, urban sound


The journal "LOGOS" is mainly devoted to scholarly studies in all areas of philosophy.
