Intersections of Science, Language, and Literature in Modern and Premodern Korea
Taking its cue from this growing body of scholarship, this workshop proposes to examine the intersection of science, language, and literature and expand this inquiry across periods, disciplines, and media, examining representations of science and scientific data in materials including but not limited to premodern archival materials, science textbooks, literature, popular science journals, general interest periodicals, and science fiction. One of our main goals is to think about the way texts and images in various genres have contended with science, and also about the ways that science relies on the medium of textual and visual narrative in a way that works to guide and shape the very projects it proposes to describe. The workshop will aim not only to expose the ways that science has been mobilized for various ideological projects and to serve different interests, but also to explore the ways in which the study of science and literature might produce insights that anticipate contemporary debates about the sciences and humanities. 
Friday/Saturday, November 4/5 2016 | 9:30 AM | Lathrop Library, 518 Memorial Way
Icons of Sound: Voice, Architecture, Imagination
Presented alongside the performance by Cappella Romana recreating the stunning acoustics of the Hagia Sophia in Bing Concert Hall, this symposium explores how music, ritual, architecture, and digital technologies converge in modern performance and immersive sensory experiences to excite our imaginations for bygone medieval cultures.
