Is it possible to work with sound in sociology rather than being about sound? Can there be a »sonic sociology«? Rémy Bocquillon reflects on the process-oriented character of sociology as an experimental science by including aesthetic practices of sounding and listening as constitutive for the making of sociological theory. Following new materialist and speculative philosophies, this study is thus a combination of sociological theory, philosophical thought and aesthetic practices, not understood as discrete fields of inquiry, but co-constituting each other. It also features an audio chapter, »feeding-back« the sonic experimentations at the core of the research in new and engaging ways.

About the author

Rémy Bocquillon, born in 1990, works at the chair for General Sociology and Sociological Theories at the Katholische Universität Eichstätt-Ingolstadt, Germany. His research interests revolve around epistemic practices bridging the gap between arts, science and philosophy, mostly, but not exclusively, through sound.
