In response to these questions, “Approaches to Sound in the Early Modern Atlantic World” brings together scholars who grapple with the challenges of studying sound cultures in the Atlantic empires. Some strive to reconcile the apparent split between performance and the written archive. They examine accounts, scores, hymnals, biographical remnants and chronicles for evidence of musical or festival soundscapes in order to piece together the acoustical fabric of the past. Others seek to re-sound “lost” or marginalized voices in a more literal fashion, by reconstructing sonic archives or creating performances that engage the audience with the auditory experience and imagination of listeners in the early modern Atlantic.
This conference is free of charge, you must reserve your space on our website to attend. Bookings close on Monday, January 30, 2023 at 5:00 p.m.
