    Abstract:
    Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Tara Rodgers asks students to delve into the historical and cultural dimensions of digital sound and music. With a concentration on creative practices, her course examines digital audio in relation to topics such as deejaying, electronic music genres, authorship, ownership, and technological progress. Students also learn to make their own audio projects. Rodgers devotes a substantial amount of time to texts, discussions, and assignments that are aimed at helping students cultivate critical listening habits—an admirable model for any sound-based syllabus. Most notably, this course provides an example of what an expansive approach to teaching with sound can look like. That is, rather than only treating sound as a semiotic mode of communication, this course amplifies the affective, physical aspects of sonic interactions, focusing specifically on bodily experiences and the relation between sound and space. Rodgers’ syllabus represents an exciting range of possibilities for sonic education in the humanities.
