Katherine Larson (Professor of English, University of Toronto) joins this week’s discussion session to speak more about literary representation and historical performance, how her musical practice and scholarly work shape each other, and why early modern studies has proven to be a rich ground for more flexible approaches to questions of subjecthood and relationality.

This event series aims to reflect on how distributed models of cognition apply to, and change our perception of, musical engagement. Growing interest in music-making practices outside the normative, and ideally sterilised, settings of the concert hall and the studio has already highlighted the extent to which ‘musicking’ creates living, distributed assemblages out of performers, listeners, instruments, and architectural spaces. In each session of the series, the academics, performers, and practitioners interviewed will share their reflections on the way the language and insights of distributed cognition engage and enrich models of aural encounter in fields such as music performance, environmental studies, history, religious studies, and literature.
