Description

Sounding Dark examines the historical Euro-American fascination with black voices.

The panel will explore how voice is racialised and marketed through music, film, culture and politics. What is blackness supposed to sound like? Voice is textured by the body, but we can’t say it is the body. Presumptions of black voice discipline black bodies, revealing the extent to which our listening practices are imbued with a colonial philosophy. Exploring concepts of voice enables us to decouple ethnocentric conflations of darkness and blackness to open up a space for new and affirmative conversations to emerge around what blackness is, or can be.

Speakers include Ayishat Akanbi, Chris Christodoulou, Shenece Oretha and Tristam Adams.
