Performing Gender as Polyphony

Pia Palme’s article Performing Gender as Polyphony is published in the book
Staging Gender – 
Reflexionen aus Theorie und Praxis der performativen Künste
Irene Lehmann, Katharina Rost, Rainer Simon (Eds.)
Bielefeld: transcript Verlag 2019

In this article, Palme writes about themes she pursued in 2018; these explorations eventually brought her to the current research topics.


In this article, I approach gender from the point of audition, that is, from the position of listening. In music, polyphony is a compositional texture that allows many individual voices to sound together. Listening to a polyphony, one can perceive the individual voices as well as the entire soundscape that is produced by all voices manifesting together.



Buchrezension

Christina Lessiak über Jennifer Lynn Stoever
The Sonic Color Line:
Race and the cultural politics of listening


Unser Alltagswissen sagt uns, dass wir Geschlecht und race* sehen können. Schalten wir das Radio ein, erleben wir, dass es zudem ein Hörwissen darüber gibt, wie beispielsweise eine schwarze** Frau klingen soll. Dass es sich dabei nicht um natürliche Klangdifferenzen qua Geschlecht und race handelt, sondern umauditive Konstruktionen, die darüber hinaus normativ und machtvoll sind, veranschaulicht Jennifer Lynn Stoever in The Sonic Color Line: Race and the cultural politics of listening (2016).
