Semester Offered: Spring

(Same as ANTH 259 ) This course examines the epistemology of the ear through experimental and ethnographic learning. It interrogates the wide range of sounds that we are exposed to: ambient sound, conversation, storytelling, music, and advertising, as well as historical hearing. It also is how we learn and perceive differnently through hearing and how sound affects our sense of place and being, and the types of knowledge we prioritize in our everyday lives. This course requires the use of basic audio and video technology. Justin Patch.
