This month we have the pleasure of reading a recent piece by Tim Boon, who very kindly agreed to join our conversation:
Boon, T. "The Cinematic Sound of Industrial Modernity: First Notes", in R. Bud et al. (eds), Being Modern. The Cultural Impact of Science in the Twentieth Century, London: UCL Press, pp. 40-57. Available open access here: https://www.uclpress.co.uk/products/114641#
And in line with our tradition of adding listenings to our readings, Tim suggests:

We hope to see many of you there!
