Repost from a comment left in the Feel the Noise: Sound, Music & Technology forum:
I've been meaning to post something here for a long time and do today hoping that there is still an audience of sorts. I'm currently reading for my fields exam here in the Center for Writing Studies in the English Department of the University of Illinois. My dissertation will be focused within Sound Studies -- in my case in what I am calling "Sonic Rhetorics". In essence, I'm interested in how music and sound are rhetorical. Putting the list together was a struggle (I'm sure that I've left important books and articles off of it). It occurred to me that it might be helpful to publish the relevant part of my bibliography for public use (and scrutiny!). It would be fantastic if folks who are pursuing similar scholarly goals would contribute to my list (which I have set up as a shared google doc) with titles of their own. It seems that one of the best things we can do to help those doing or beginning work in this new field is keep an eye on what people are reading. Click on the link below to access and contribute to the bib. Thanks!
