« If music and sound are “thick events” that exceed our ability to grasp them fully (see Eidsheim 2015), what resources do we have to make (at least) partial sense of them? In a two-day symposium, we aim to spark a conversation exploring how metaphorical language works as one of these resources, examining how it shapes the ways in which we perceive and understand not only music, but one another and the world. We welcome work that builds on the rich body of cognitive, linguistic, and philosophical research, but we are especially interested in projects that trace the covert power of naturalized metaphors. We invite personal reflections, ethnographic studies, and disciplinary critiques, and encourage play with language as well as sensory and conceptual practices. Our ultimate aim is to shift the power balance in terms of who gets to name, whose experiences and practices are recognized, which relationships we have the capacity to note, and what kinds of worlds we can create. »
