Summary:The digital turn has created new opportunities for scholars across disciplines to use sound in their scholarship. This volume's contributors provide a blueprint for making sound central to research, teaching, and dissemination. They show how digital sound studies has the potential to transform silent, text-centric cultures of communication in the humanities into rich, multisensory experiences that are more inclusive of diverse knowledges and abilities. Drawing on multiple disciplines--including rhetoric and composition, performance studies, anthropology, history, and information science--the contributors to Digital Sound Studies bring digital humanities and sound studies into productive conversation while probing the assumptions behind the use of digital tools and technologies in academic life. In so doing, they explore how sonic experience might transform our scholarly networks, writing processes, research methodologies, pedagogies, and knowledges of the archive. As they demonstrate, incorporating sound into scholarship is thus not only feasible but urgently necessary.

Review by Choice Review

With this collection Lingold (English, Virginia Commonwealth Univ.), Mueller (musicology, Eastman School of Music), and Trettien (English, Univ. of Pennsylvania) demonstrate that the digital era makes possible a multisensory approach to humanistic study, albeit a primarily visual experience using only images and text in its study of sound. The volume offers a fascinating variety of perspectives on digital sound studies, from explanations of the technologies moving scholarship in the field forward, to challenges that need to be addressed, to theoretical explorations of what it means to work with sound in the digital age. The essays span many disciplines and provide much of interest to students and researchers working in a broad range of disciplines. Contributors reference seminal articles in literary and music studies, along with many other important works, and the excellent index allows the reader to track concepts through the different approaches. Works that link digital humanities and sound studies are somewhat rare, and the present volume is a rich addition to a growing body of knowledge. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals. --Melissa Anderson, Southern Oregon University
