Hearing Texts: The Auditory in Slavic Literatures


ULBANDUS, the Slavic Review of Columbia University, is now requesting submissions for its next issue, which will follow last year’s successful issue on the visual (Ulbandus XV) with a focus on the auditory in Slavic literatures. We welcome papers that together will reveal the current state of scholarship on intersections between the auditory and the literary in the field of Slavic studies.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:


-intersections between literature and the musical arts, including folk/traditional music, songs, chamber music, symphonies, ballet music, opera, film soundtracks, and popular music

-depictions of music in Slavic literature

-interactions between Slavic literature and the study of acoustics

-the study of conversation and colloquial speech in Slavic languages

-the use and representation of colloquial speech in Slavic literature

-the relationship between spoken and literary language

-experiments with the sound of language and its role in literary thought

-considerations of sound and sound devices in literary translation

-the aural element in the performance of literature (public/private readings, poetry recitations, drama, etc.)

-the transition from visual to aural when discussing and teaching literature (literary salon, classroom, etc.)

-musical adaptations of literary (and non-literary) texts

-the advent of sound in Russian and Soviet cinema

In addition to scholarly articles, ULBANDUS encourages submission of original poetry, fiction, translations, photography, and artwork. The deadline for submissions is February 17, 2014.
