on the recent publication of his book, Bangkok Is Ringing: Sound, Protest and Constraint, by Oxford University Press. Bangkok is Ringing is an on-the-ground sound studies analysis of the Red Shirt and Yellow Shirt protests that shook Thailand just before other international political movements, including Arab Spring and Occupy Wall Street. By comparing these protests, Dr. Tausig seeks to understand the logic not only of political change in Thailand, but across the globe. Dr. Tausig is Assistant Professor of Music (Ethnomusicology) at Stony Brook University. He gave a well-received presentation on his research at the Melville Library in October of 2018. Bangkok is Ringing can be found in the Music Library’s New Books area under Music HN700.5.B38 T38 2019.
