Description - Resonant Alterities by Sylvia Mieszkowski

This book attempts to bridge the gap between sound studies and literary criticism. Primary objects of analysis are a ghost story by Vernon Lee, a novel of psychic adventure by Algernon Blackwood, a dystopian science fiction tale by J.G. Ballard and a post-traumatic short novel by Don DeLillo. Each is discussed in relation to historically specific, (non-)literary cultural debates on sound. All four theory-enriched analyses focus on intersecting and desire-laden processes of meaning making, knowledge production and subject formation. Focal points are aurally/audio-visually structured phenomena which express collective and individual anxieties.
