The proposition--constructing interdisciplinary studies of the auditory culture in the humanities--aims at discovering, delineating, and explicating the problematics, academic frontiers, and conceptual edges of the aforementioned dimension of auditory studies in the humanities. Specifically, there are ten “worksites”, as the title of this presentation indicates, and one "trap" within this overall interdisciplinary project. The “worksites” refer to actual and potential undertakings such as genealogical work of mapping keywords, archaeological work of excavating and re-narrating knowledge of the auditory in philosophy and intellectual history, and so on, whereas the “trap” represents a variety of mental dichotomies between the visual and the auditory.
