HUM470: Interdisciplinary Studies in the Humanities: Voice (Spring 2019)

Course Info

This seminar examines the theory and practice of the human voice across media including literature and music, as well as film, podcasting, social media, and other digital technologies. Taught by a poet (and English professor) and a composer (and musicologist), our work will be both critical, prioritizing close reading of texts, and practical, involving creative assignments, in-class enactments, and group exercises. Our basic question: How do transformations of the voice affect social, political, and aesthetic space? A comfort with, or desire to make friends with, vocal spontaneity is a must.
