Feminist Theory Week 11: Stoever, Carson, & Plato on the body-voice relationship
It’s nearing the end of the semester, so we’re covering stuff I’ve already written a lot about (look at that expert course planning, making sure my prep is light when I’m overextended and exhausted!).
First, here is a piece on Carson’s “The Gender of Sound,” social attitudes about women’s voices, & its translation to contemporary contexts.
Second, here is an ooooold piece on the role of sound and gender in Plato’s Symposium, and philosophy more generally (hey, if any editor wants this piece, hit me up–it has yet to be published, mostly bc I’ve been working on 2 books in the meantime).
