Aural Architecture Seminar with Christina Maranci
As both a forum open to the public and a course offering academic credit to Stanford students (ARTH208C/408C, cross-listed with Classics, Music, Religious Studies, and CREEES), this year-long seminar explores the creation and operations of sacred space in Byzantium by focusing on the intersection of architecture, acoustics, music, and ritual. The goal is to develop a new interpretive framework for the study of aural architecture and religious experience. Leading scholars from the US and abroad will present their current research and lead the discussion.
Discussion will center on pre-circulated papers posted on the auralarchitecture.stanford.edu website before the individual sessions. These readings will explore the relationship between sound and space by integrating the humanities with exact sciences. Topics rage from architectural design and materials, Byzantine musicology, psalmody, medieval music notation, reconstructions of ritual and modern performance to the science of acoustics, computer modeling, and auralizations.
Meetings are scheduled on select Mondays in Cummings Art Building, room 103.
