Subject: Folger Seminar
The Folger Institute would like to advertise the following seminar:
"The O-Factor: Voice, Media, and Community in Early Modern England," a semester
seminar at the Folger Institute
This seminar will study the ways in which media including handwriting,
printing, musical notation, pictures, and part-books for plays vary in
registering the human voice. The seminar will further attend to early modern
ideas about speaking and listening, discuss some recent forays into
post-phenomenology, attempt an acoustical reconstruction of the Globe theatre,
and argue about the political implications of hearing versus seeing.
The seminar will meet Friday afternoons at the Folger Shakespeare Library, from
23 September to 9 December. For application information, please contact the
Folger Institute at 202-675-0349.
