Early Modern Songscapes

Wednesday 17 February 2021, 5.00PM

Speaker(s): Professor Katherine Larson (University of Toronto)

Early Modern Songscapes is an intermedia project that aims more fully to animate song's least tangible, yet essential facets: its generic fluidity; its ability to register multiple meanings and permeate boundaries in unexpected ways; and its rootedness in the air. In this seminar, Professor Larson will frame the presentation of the website in relation to her recently published book The Matter of Song in Early Modern England: Texts in and of the Air (Oxford University Press, 2019), which also includes and open access comparison recording.
