Lecture series at New York University from 2009-2011, co-organized with Michael Gallope (Music); Amy Cimini (Music); Ceci Moss (Comparative Literature); Daniel Hoffman-Schwartz (Comparative Literature); Magali Armillas-Tiseyra (Comparative Literature)
Description “Music, Language, Thought” is an on-going series of interdisciplinary events organized by the departments of Music and Comparative Literature at New York University. This collaboration expands upon and formalizes existing cooperation between our departments, which has flourished over the last several years.
Events take the form of presentations and discussions between scholars in Music and Literature. They aim to explore the zones of convergence between our departments’ respective areas of inquiry, largely in relation to questions of critical aesthetic theory: the relation between affect and politics, the sensible and reason, each considered across different forms of media and materiality.
