Urban Humanities Seminar Series: Valmont Layne on ‘Auditing’ vernacular Cape Town as a sonic city

23 August, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm SAST

We are excited to host Valmont Layne from the University of the Western Cape’s Humanities Research Centre who will be reflecting on ‘Auditing’ vernacular Cape Town as a sonic city’

ABSTRACT: Cape Town offers a generative example of the postcolonial port city as an affective space – especially reading its vernacular musicking lifeworld as sonic expressions of oceanic and terrestrial worlds. In this talk, Valmont Layne share some of the opportunities and challenges of doing this work, and will reflect on the possible implications for new epistemic engagements with the postcolonial city drawing on literatures on affect and on sound studies.
