Early Modern Soundscapes Workshop 3: Sound Affects

Thursday 23 April 2020, 9.00AM to 24 Apr

Speaker(s): Tbc

This final workshop builds upon our exploration of the sites, spaces and archives of sound to explore how people act on sound and sound on people. We will consider the evidence we have regarding the ways early modern people responded to sounds. Bringing in scholars who work on sound studies beyond the early modern period, we will ask how sounds connect to sensory experience, emotion, the body, race, gender and disability. The workshop will also explore how we profit from practice-led approaches such as musical performances and digital reconstruction.

Further details to follow.
