Hegemonic Hues: The Problem of Imagining Frozen Space and Time

  • Reagan Patrick Mitchell Colgate University


The accompanied “Multi-vocal Response and Discussion” is part of the larger set of responses to Dr. Walter Gershon’s book Sound Curriculum: Sonic Studies in Educational Theory, Method, Practice (2017). In my response segment, I wrote of an experience I had while in discussion with my Fall 2017 semester class at Colgate University in the Department of Educational Studies titled “Theories of Teaching and Learning: Sonic Inquiry.” Within the collective of the responses to Gershon’s text, my segment gives insight into some of the discourse/inquiry incited within the classroom in reaction to experiencing his book, visually and sonically.
