September 20, 2022
The Department of English and Comparative Literature congratulates Professor Stathis Gourgouris, who was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship in Literary Criticism for 2023.
During the Fellowship year, Professor Gourgouris will pursue a new research project, "On Listening: Acoustics, Acousmatics, Noise/Music, and the Worldly Encounter." The project will engage both the Pythagorean and later Enlightenment views on listening as a human sense in the contemporary context of technologies of sound and the social construction of aural aesthetics.
