Sound and Image in the Middle Ages: Iconography, Sound Studies, and Digital Humanities
Tuesday, 23 May 2017, 6:30 – 8pm
A public lecture by Professor Susan Boynton (Columbia University) during her fellowship at the Trinity Long Room Hub in collaboration with the School of Histories & Humanities.
Medieval images of music reflect cultural values associated with musical performance and experience.
Recent research in this field encompasses a broad and steadily expanding range of approaches, including musical iconography (the description of images depicting musical performance, instruments, and other forms of sound), interpretation of the physical and historical context of musical images (for instance, their functions in particular built spaces), and computer-assisted analysis of a corpus of examples.
