Dr. Holger Schulze

Prof. of Musicology Copenhagen University, PI Sound Studies Lab, founding member European Sound Studies Association

Holger Schulze’s research focuses on the cultural history of the senses, sound in popular culture and the anthropology of media. Listening is his main and preferred approach to explore the anthropology of sound - in all its varieties of situated and mediated, indulging and critical, of corporeal and conceptual listening. The listening body is in his research being considered as an instrument that allows for an erratic yet generative precision of sensibility.

He serves as curator for the Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin and as founding editor of the book series Sound Studies. He was invited visiting professor at the Musashino Art University in Tokyo, at the Leuphana Universität Lüneburg, at the Berlin University of the Arts, and the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin. He is associated investigator at the cluster of excellence Image Knowledge Gestaltung at the Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and vice chair of the European Sound Studies Association. He writes for TEXTE ZUR KUNST, Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, Merkur, freitag, Seismograf, Positionen.
