This public panel brings together experts who will discuss the notion of voice, from technical concerns to political potential to affective possibilities. This is the beginning of a full Season exploration of VOICE, ranging from the relationships between vocal performers and engaged audiences to voice as agency in political work. Is there a connection between the discernment of an audience and the galvanizing of political agency when viewing the world stage? Is the affective power of another’s voice an activating force? Is there a historic connection between care, queerness, cultural criticism, and activist voice?
Panelists: Gregg Bordowitz, Steve Cosson, Mara Mills, and Johanna Burton, Director and Curator of Education and Public Engagement. Moderated by Jeanine Oleson.
