*APPROVED* Explores the transformations of sound in modern literary and cinematic forms from the 1890s to the mid-20th century This volume brings together a range of essays by eminent and emergent scholars working at the intersection of modern literary, cinema and sound studies. The individual studies ask what specific sonorous qualities are capable of being registered by different modern media, and how sonic transpositions and transferences across media affect the ways in which human subjects attend to modern soundscapes. Script, groove, electrical current, magnetic imprint, phonographic vibration: as the contributors show, sound traverses these and other material platforms to become an insistent ground-note of modern aesthetics, one not yet adequately integrated into critical accounts of the period. This collection also provides a commanding and wide-ranging investigation of the conditions under which modernists tapped technically into the rhythms, echoes and sonic architectures of their worlds. Julian Murphet is Scientia Professor of English and Film Studies at the University of New South Wales, Australia. Helen Groth is Professor of English at the University of New South Wales, Australia. Penelope Hone has recently been awarded her doctorate from the University of New South Wales, Australia.
