Event description

Description

Distinguished Professor of Music and Philosophy, Professor Rothenberg (Why Birds Sing, 2005; Berlin Bülbül, 2016) will discuss the different approaches through which human beings have attempted to understand the sounds and songs of other species. Examples range from sonogram recordings—which enabled scientists like William Thorpe to slow down and visually analyse the complex ‘patterning’ of a male chaffinch’s song—to rather less precise, though in some ways more evocative, renderings of birdsong in poetry and literature. Professor Rothenberg will be joined by the Experimental Psychologist, Nina Kazanina (University of Bristol), and Computational Neuroscientist, Dr. Conor Houghton (University of Bristol), who will introduce postgraduate in the Humanities to some of the groundbreaking research currently being conduction on non-human animal communication systems in her field. Postgraduates from all departments are welcome to this interdisciplinary workshop—free tea, coffee and sandwiches provided! If you have any questions please contact Joan Passey at joan.passey@bristol.ac.uk. There is a limit of 20 tickets.
