OPEN ACCESS WEEK - Coming soon: Voice, Presence, Absence

MediaObject: Voice, Presence, Absence

UTS ePRESS proudly announces a new item that will soon be joining their collection: Voice, Presence, Absence, forming part of the Media Object collection. Media Object is a unique Open Access book publishing series, which allows practice-based creative arts researchers to publish in a variety of media forms, extending the language of the traditional scholarly book or monograph into the multimodal digital age.

The work collects international contributions from academic scholars and practitioners, together with recorded live performances of artists, writers, musicians and poets, creating the space for a discussion of the role of voice in contemporary humanities.

Voice, Presence, Absence is conceived as a dialogue: between a variety of interpretive frameworks and definitions of voice; between different objects of study (from contemporary art to post-dramatic theatre, from radio voices to recorded poetry and audiobooks, from pop music to novels, from the voice of trees to that of birds, etc.) and, most importantly, between artists, performers and the world of academia.

Voice, Presence, Absence will be available via UTS ePRESS from the end of October 2014.
