The Great Lakes Association for Sound Studies (GLASS) was established in 2016 to gather scholars working in sound studies (broadly construed: any scholarship for which sound is a method or object of study) in the Great Lakes region. The goal is to generate high-level conversations around central problems in sound studies that could lead to new publications, grants, collaborations, and projects.
