How do we think, do and disseminate voice? In unpacking the implications of such a question from the perspective of UK Higher Education, Thomaidis draws on case studies of recent doctoral projects in order to examine practice into, for and through research. This chapter revisits Cavarero’s critique of logocentrism and extends it in relation to the two axes of logos-as-reason and logos-as-language in vocal knowledge and dissemination. In deconstructing the epistemologies of voice in training and research programmes, the chapter argues for a praxical understanding of voice that allows for multiple and contingent engagements with its phonic element within the academy. This is a reworked and expanded version of an earlier article, serving as Chapter 1 in the volume Voice Studies: Critical Approaches to Process, Performance and Experience
