LOCATION: Anderson Academic Commons, Special Events Room
Sound Learning: Considerations of Perception, Socialization and Faith Formation
Presented by M. Roger Holland, II, teaching assistant professor—music and religion, director of The Spirituals Project
Thought and meaning derived from sound can have far reaching implications when one considers how music and music choice can impact social and learning environmental conditions, as well as faith formation for members of religious institutions. This lecture will examine how the language of sound can communicate in subtle and not so subtle ways, and have a lasting, formative impact on the listener. Special attention will be given to this phenomenon as experienced in the worship life of Black Catholics in the United States.
