We are proud to announce that the tenth issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies (web site), a proceedings issue of the second international European Sound Studies Association Conference (2014), is online.
The main theme of the conference was « mapping the field » and focused on (research into) sound artworks, sound archives, sound designs, audio books, for methodologies of sound studies, for sonic histories, for studying various listening attitudes, for audio technologies, etc.
This issue of the Journal of Sonic Studies contains eight contributions that, taken together, should not only give an overview of the versatility of the conference, but also show the value and productivity of sound studies in general.
