Visions and Revisions Keynote: A Musical Passage: Listening in on the 17th Century Black Atlantic
April 7, 2018 @ 4:15 pm - 5:45 pm
This event is part of Visions and Revisions: Romance Utopias and Dystopias, the 24th Annual Carolina Conference for Romance Studies. PDF of the flyer
In this presentation, Dr. Dubois will speak about a collaborative digital project done with Mary Caton Lingold and David Garner (musicalpassage.org) meant to use music and sound to reconstruct the worlds of the 17th century Black Atlantic. He will explore how music offers a unique way into an understanding of cultural history, and how we can use the digital to connect the archive with contemporary performance practice.
Laurent Dubois is Professor of Romance Studies and History at Duke University.
