Modernity’s Radical Ear and the Sonic Infidelity of Zora Neale Hurston’s Recordings

(p.125) Epilogue
Modernity'S Ear

Roshanak Kheshti

NYU Press

The concluding chapter offers an alternate and parallel history of listening to the other in modernity through an examination of recordings made of and by Zora Neale Hurston in various recording expeditions between 1935 and 1939. This contrapuntal Epilogue focuses on recordings that offer an alternative listening relation to the one chronicled in the other five chapters, one that is as firmly rooted within modernity but refuses the social structuration and symbolic formations mapped in the WMCI. This concluding chapter presents a different origin story of recording than the one chronicled in the book, offering the starting point for a liberationist genealogy that the book wishes for.

Keywords:   Zora Neale Hurston, James Snead, phonographic refusal, ethnographic refusal, sonic infidelity
