Cultural Resonance and the Echo Chamber of Reading
讲座地点：腾讯会议（会议 ID：324 922 632）
In this lecture, I will introduce the eponymous special issue with the journal Canadian Review of Comparative Literature (December 2020), a research project in collaboration with colleagues from Sweden, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, and the UK, of which I worked as the organizer and editor. The project broadly investigates the relationship between literature and sound (both as a physical phenomenon and metaphor). Moreover, it proposes a few methodological possibilities of “listening” as reading in our studies of Comparative Literature.
