Reads a wide range of contemporary feminist theorists to show how
they invest in sound as a medium of critical thought.
In The Sounds of Feminist Theory, Ruth Salvaggio follows a
distinctive turn toward the oral and evocative qualities of
language in feminist theory. Questioning paradigms of female voice
and varied feminist claims to language, she suggests that feminist
theorists listen to the ways in which words mean more than they
ostensibly signify, the ways in which language and epistemology --
like sound -- are mobile. She calls this theoretical project
"Hearing the O", a process of listening for and seizing those
wavering qualities of language that invite changes, often
remarkable alterations, in how we think.
