February 6, 2014 - 5:15pm - February 20, 2014 - 5:15pm
Shayna Silverstein
Room 102, Music Building

This workshop will meet weekly for three weeks in February 2014 to discuss the subject of violence in relation to aesthetics of sound.  Drawing on theories articulated by Fanon, Arendt, Das, and Zizek, among others, we will orient our discussions around historical and contemporary case studies (sub-saharan Africa, Balkans, Europe, Middle East, South Asia, and the United States) to better understand how the aesthetics of sound is implicated in the meanings and workings of violence.
