WGSS Faculty Spotlight with Ann Cahill - Sept. 21

The Elon University professor of philosophy talks on "The Politics of the Embodied Voice" in Lakeside Hall at 5 p.m.

This presentation will explore a variety of social, political and ethical meanings of the human voice, with a focus on sound rather than speech. How are the sonorous qualities of the human voice implicated in social and political systems of inequality? What might vocal liberation look like? How does understanding the voice as embodied and material help to illuminate its relationship to sexism, racism, ableism and heteronormativity?
