Brian Larkin: Ecologies of Sound and Difference
Faculty Focus
 In-Person Event | January 12 | 7:00 p.m. (Paris)

We live in worlds of sound. Our everyday lives are made up of thousands of actions whereby we learn to muffle, amplify, avoid and live with the promiscuous sounds that surround us. This talk by Professor Brian Larkin will explore these ecologies of sound – what it means to live with them and the machines that make them. This talk will be held in English.

Faculty Focus is part part of the SNF Rendez-Vous de l'Institut: The Fellows' Series, organized by the Institute for Ideas and Imagination. It is co-sponsored by Columbia Global Centers | Paris.
