Sónia Matos: [ o ]
Wednesday 24 March – 12am

Sónia Matos presents her current research on the small island of La Gomera (Canary Islands), home to a whistled form of language. The presentation will touch upon the problematics of language and its techniques of inscription. Drawing on personal ethnographic experience, the work of anthropology, linguistics, philosophy and neurology, this presentation will propose a material deconstruction of quantitative modes of aural representation and its logico-mathematical bias; further enhancing, embodied modes of thought and the role of perceptual experience in the construction of human subjectivity.

Sónia Matos (1978, Azores Islands) is a cultural researcher currently working towards the completion of her PhD at the Centre for Cultural Studies, Goldsmiths College, University of London.
