Lingold, Mueller, and Trettien are members of SoundBox, a collaborative project funded by the new PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge at the Franklin Humanities Institute ( The group's goal is to design a digital interface suited to the needs of academics who want to use sound content in their scholarly productions - to write about sound, in sound.
Duke graduate students interested in becoming more deeply involved with the PhD Lab in Digital Knowledge are highly encouraged to apply to the Lab's Scholars Program. Applications are now being accepted, deadline is September 3 - see CFP at

Wednesdays at the Center is a topical weekly series in which scholars, artists, journalists, and others speak informally about their work in conversation with the audience. The series is jointly organized and presented by the John Hope Franklin Center, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and coordinated by Miguel Rojas-Sotelo.

All events in the WATC series are free and open to the public. A light lunch is served - no reservations are necessary. The Franklin Center is located at 2204 Erwin Road, on the corner of Erwin and Trent - see this map for more information.
