Sound: The Sacred,The Secular
Sound: The Sacred,The Secular (New Course for Fall 2010)
Prof. Ana Maria Ochoa
This course explores the significance of sound for understanding the negotiation of the relation between the sacred and the secular, in light of recent work in critical religious studies. It seeks to explore the acoustic dimensions of the 'turn to religion' by exploring the uses of sound in mediating the relationship between the sacred and the secular in different cultures.
