As part of his one week engagement with staff and students of the University of Kent as a ‘visiting expert’, Philip Auslander will offer the following presentation at the Medway campus: “Sound and Vision: The Audio-Visual Economy of Musical Performance”. Auslander is a Professor at the School of Literature, Media, and Communication, Georgia Tech, Atlanta and internationally acclaimed for his writings on gender and theatricality in popular music as well as liveness and performance in a mediatized culture. The talk is followed by a brief live music performance at the Galvanising Shop: Christina Lagao and David Roesner will translate some iconic pop songs into a more intimate acoustic setting under the heading “Divas Unplugged”.
This will act as an interlude to a drinks reception which will offer the opportunity for more dialogue and discussion.
Date/Time: Tuesday October 15th, 5.00-6.30pm
Location: Galvanising Shop, Chatham Historic Dockyard, Medway
