Abstract

For a long time, the study of words and their content has prevailed over that of sounds and their medium: the voice was understood only in a metaphorical sense. In the last decade, studies of vocality have multiplied and have shown the great value of the analysis of voice and its reception for the field of cultural studies, as well as for gender studies. This introductory article examines some of the many research directions that are currently being pursued in this field, to show how vocal analysis not only denaturalizes the voice but provides new insights into how the binary view of gender has been constructed.
