Dear Sound Studies Members,

I hope you are having a wonderful fall and a beautiful Halloween weekend. I
am writing with to announce that on *Tuesday* *November 15 at 5:30 in WHC
B04* we will be reading excerpts from Ashon Crawley's recently released
book *Blackpentecostal Breath: The Aesthetics of Possibility. *

This is a challenging and exciting book which crosses all kinds of
disciplinary boundaries as it fundamentally argues against philosophical
currents which enforce *categorical distinctions*. We are reaching out a
bit earlier since reading the text may take some time. Nicholas Forster,
PhD candidate in African American Studies and Film and Media Studies, will
provide some introduction to the discussion.

The reading selections are available on classes V2 and the entire book is
accessible through ORBIS <https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__hdl.handle.net_10079_bibid_12902490&d=CwIFaQ&c=-dg2m7zWuuDZ0MUcV7Sdqw&r=InYMYnUc-1mpSgY3qDIzBrVOgBTbtaL4WhYzqX_0YVA&m=-bAZKqFOqJX8rbZjjX8mIrI9l3qB83bOubBYvAyl33M&s=e0fwQkTEH7T-sVt73UsxuMlzTyXtDEOuxKvH7wO1vm4&e= >. The
book seems to resist having excerpts drawn so if you are interested in more
of the argument check out the full book! For our discussion we will read
