*UPDATED* Special Issue Call for Proposals: Sound Traumas: Curricular Attunements for Care and Educational Understandings
Special issue editors, Boni Wozolek (Penn State University, Abington College) and Walter S. Gershon (Rowan University), are calling for proposals for an issue of JCT that will attend to curricular attunements of sound(ed) trauma that can be heard across spaces, from classrooms and corridors to communities. The purpose of this issue is to theorize how sound is central to educational studies and curriculum theorizing by thinking through what might be understood as forms of sonic warfare (Goodman, 2012) and sonic ways of beingknowingdoing that undergird educational contexts, those that amplify justice as well as those that actively dampen its potential possibilities.
We conceptualize these collective injustices and (un)intentional harm as forms of sound trauma. As with assemblages of violence that are entangled with questions of hope (Wozolek, 2021), this special issue seeks contributions that note the imbricated nature of care and pain as well as those that enunciate how curricular attunements can combat or otherwise circumnavigate such traumas. Each piece must in some fashion address the sonic in ways that acknowledge its presence across curricular traditions and understandings present in the field of sound studies (e.g., Bull & Back, 2015; Sterne, 2012). In addition, JCT’s electronic format allows for the inclusion of sonic materials, a possibility we also encourage but one that is by no means a prerequisite for inclusion in this special issue.
