Dear colleagues --

This year's IASA conference in Berlin will feature three keynote speakers during the course of the week. We will be promoting each of these idea leaders leading up to the conference.

I am happy to introduce you all to the opening keynote speaker: Jonathan Sterne.

He is author of MP3: The Meaning of a Format (Duke 2012), The Audible Past: Cultural Origins of Sound Reproduction (Duke, 2003); and numerous articles on media, technologies and the politics of culture. He is also editor of The Sound Studies Reader (Routledge, 2012).
