Maral Attar-Zadeh (Cambridge)
What does it mean to think about cognition and consciousness as “distributed”? What do distributed models of thinking and selfhood say about musical experience, and how does musical engagement––scholarly encounters with music as well as the experience of musicking itself––in turn challenge, deform, and enrich these models? What does this dialogue reveal about the potentials and promises (and about the limits and impossibilities) of interdisciplinary work?
We will begin thinking through these central questions in this discussion session, which follows the release of the first podcast episode of the series. One of the main aims of the series is to be, itself, an exercise in collective and distributed thinking; in this first session we will work together to define the terms of our conversation and to delineate our main aims and interests, to be revisited with the help of our guest speakers in the weeks to come.
If you have specific accessibility needs for this event please get in touch. We will do our best to accommodate any requests.
