“This is a rich and complex study that makes important contributions to sound studies and the understanding of listening as a potentially disruptive, liberating, and radical act in contemporary Francophone postcolonial cultures.” Martin Munro, Modern and Contemporary France
“Solheim is clearly very able to read in critical depth and offers some original insights … which will have a significant shelf life and broad readership not only in music and cultural studies, but also in sound studies, sociology, history and perhaps even literary studies.” Dr. Helen Julia Minors, Kingston University
“The Performance of Listening in Postcolonial Francophone Culture is a fascinating and compelling project … Solheim’s endeavour is a vital and important contribution to the field.” Claire Launchbury, H-France Review
