Dear WFAE Members and Acoustic Ecology community,
This post is a reminder that it is now three weeks until the close (October 1) of the Call for Presentations for the upcoming WFAE Conference in March 2023. More information on the conference and CFP can be found on the WFAE website.
This post also features several announcements related to the conference.
We are pleased to announce Amanda Gutierrez as one of our keynote presenters.
A member of the new WFAE affiliate, REA_MX, and one of the Directors of the World Listening Project, Gutiérrez explores the experience of home, belonging, and cultural identity by bringing into focus details of everyday practices whose ordinary status makes it particularly hard for us to notice their key role in defining who we are. Gutiérrez uses a range of media including sound art and performance art to investigate how these conditions of everyday life set the stage for our experiences and in doing so shape our individual and collective identities.
Approaching these questions from women’s perspective continues to be of special interest to Gutiérrez, who completed her MFA in Media and Performance Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and is currently elaborating on the academic dimension of her work developing her Ph.D. studies in Arts and Humanities (HUMA) at Concordia University in Canada, studying the field of aural technologies in connection with Gender Studies in the urban context.
