The revocalization of logos? Thinking, doing and disseminating voice

Konstantinos Thomaidis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


As a specific object of interest for philosophy, the human voice is grasped within a system of signification that subordinates speech to the concept. It is in the traditional dualism between the vocal/aural and the conceptual/seen that Cavarero postulates the de-vocalization of logos, the dichotomy between embodied phonation and critical enquiry. Her remarks invite further probing of the pedagogy and creative praxis of voice: how do we conceptualize voicing? How does voice emerge from and reflect back to its discursive domains? How can we bridge the chasm between the ontology and epistemology of voice? How do we think, do and disseminate voice? In reflecting on these concerns, our overall aspiration is to propose a new paradigm for practice as research (PaR) education in Voice Studies.
