Colloquium: Naomi Waltham-Smith University of Pennsylvania: Listening Otherwise in and to Classical Persian Poetry
Colloquium | November 16 | 4:30 p.m. | 128 Morrison Hall
Naomi Waltham-Smith is a theorist of sound and listening. In her research and creative projects, she is interested in how music and sound are implicated in some of the most significant and urgent political issues in our world today. Her work sits at the intersection of continental philosophy, sound studies, and music theory, and her interests extend from late 18th- and early 19th-century music to contemporary urban sound ecologies, and from post-Kantian European thought to Kafka and casinos.
