Faculty Collaborative Work

After an exciting inaugural year, The Voice Project Principal Investigators Martha Feldman and Judith Zeitlin have again convened a group of faculty from Cinema and Media Studies, the College, East Asian Languages and Civilizations, English, Germanic Studies, Music, and Philosophy, who will be engaged in an intensive working seminar during the 2014-2015 Academic Year. Primary participants include:

  • Seth Brodsky, Assistant Professor of Music and the Humanities in the College
  • Xinyu Dong, Assistant Professor, Department of Cinema and Media Studies, and the College; affiliated faculty at the Center for East Asian Studies
  • Frances Ferguson, Ann L. and Lawrence B. Buttenwieser Professor, Department of English Language and Literature and the College
  • Thomas Gunning, Edwin A. and Betty L. Bergman Distinguished Service Professor, Department of Art History, Department of Cinema and Media Studies, and the College
  • Florian Klinger, Neubauer Family Assistant Professor of Germanic Studies, and the College; Director of Undergraduate Studies
  • James Lastra, Associate Professor, Department of Cinema and Media Studies, Department of English Language & Literature, and the College
  • David Levin, Addie Clark Harding Professor, Department of Germanic Studies, Department of Cinema & Media Studies, the Committee on Theater and Performance Studies, and the College; Director, Gray Center for Arts and Inquiry
  • Gabriel Richardson Lear, Professor, Philosophy Department

  • Neil Verma, Visiting Assistant Professor, Department of Radio/Television/Film, Northwestern University School of Communication

The goal is to refine and define the most urgent issues engaging voice from a variety of disciplinary and creative perspectives. Outside scholars and practitioners working in matters of voice will visit the seminar intermittently throughout the year, in some instances giving a public presentation.

Through these activities the work of the faculty seminar will define the project’s principal goals and working methods for future years.
