Dec. 8

The Audio Cultures of India meeting involved South Asian, North American, and European participants from the sciences, technology, humanities, and social sciences. It continued a pilot investigation of the scientific analysis of recorded sound, instruments, and related material artifacts to explore how methods of big science might elucidate and facilitate the humanistic understanding of music, speech, and other audio expressions. This session was attended by representatives from universities, libraries, archives, and other institutions worldwide, who participated in roundtables, special presentations, and discussions to further the project's goals. The project is supported by the University of Chicago Center in Delhi, Neubauer Collegium for Culture and Society, and Committee on Southern Asian Studies at the University of Chicago.
