during mid may, i participated in a conference at university of nottingham called “resonating occupation.” part of a set of workshops on occupation and colonialism called Cultures of Occupation in Twentieth Century Asia (COTCA) , the workshop was a full day of papers at the intersection of sound studies and studies of colonialism. the papers ranged from those on the sound of military bases, to sounds of protest, to my own work on sonic histories of multiple occupation on the east coast of taiwan. i thought that i would share my paper here in a short series of blog posts
