About Us

This workshop started as a Borghesi-Mellon Interdisciplinary Workshop in the Humanities grant from the Center for the Humanities at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Our broad purpose is:

  • To connect and build an interdisciplinary community of practice around researching and teaching sound at UW Madison and in the local community.
  • To offer lectures, workshops, meetings and other events dedicated to help faculty better use audio/sound in teaching and their research.
  • To raise awareness of sound archives and other sound resources on campus and in Madison.

The SoundStudies@UW core working group consists of Andrew Bottomley (Communication Arts), Craig Eley ​(Wisconsin Public Radio), Lisa Hollenbach (English), Joseph Koykkar (Dance), Jeremy Morris (Communication Arts), and Erica Zhang (English).
