Call for papers Round Table KNOCK, TAP, RAP

Call for Papers July 2020

Round table

Round table
Knock, Tap, Rap
Knocking, Tapping and Rapping are terms to describe sounds as well as cultural practices that have important functions in a wide area ranging from everyday life to arts, religion, language and philosophy, communication and language. It became virulent recently in the political discussion about the «no-knock warrant» in the US.
But there seems to be more to the subject than that: from the use of knocking to test material to the literary topic of door-knocking, to the extensive use of knocking sounds in sound art and contemporary music. The sound of knocking, tapping and rapping inhabits and intervenes in multiple contexts.
For a two-day round table mini-symposium on the auditory phenomena of knocking, tapping and rapping ARS - CUPRAS is looking for contributions from different academic fields and professions, including, but not limited to:

 Humanities and culture studies (in particular literature studies, musicology, art history, philosophy, anthropology)
    Life Sciences
    Nature Sciences
    Social Sciences
    et al
 reports from practical experience are also welcome, for example:
       Culinary studies
    Experience from craftsmanship
    et al
as well as artistic contributions on the theme of knocking, tapping and rapping.
We are interested in a multi-disciplinary exchange and hope to bring together a wide variety of approaches and views. And we also welcome contributions that approach the field of everyday sounds and their meaning under a different connotation.
The Round Table is planned for 28 and 29 November 2020 at the Academy of Sciences and Literature Mainz and at the Music School Mainz of the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, Germany.
(Due to the uncertain situation in autumn an online conference or a mixed version is also possible.) If you are unable to attend, we are also happy to receive texts and written comments.
A publication of the results is planned.
Please send a proposal of a presentation (10 - 15 min)
and/or text contributions to:
Deadline is September 30, 2020.
We will notify the selected speakers in due course.
If you have any Questions regarding the round-table, please do not hesitate to contact us:
Organization Committee
