Music touches us all. How it moves us, both individually and in a social context, will be the forum of the Music as Media Focus Group in UCSB’s IHC Seminar Room on April 7 and 28. UCSB communication prof Howie Giles and psych prof Dave Hamilton will discuss how to bridge “gaps” between the disciplines of humanities, communication, and psychology regarding music and its effects on us. Research exists in all three fields, but is peripheral in terms of how the medium of music affects the ties between these sciences. The forum will discuss individuals’ experience with music during their processing of social events, and, in turn, how social events affect our interpretation of music. Hear that, Bob Dylan? It goes down Friday, April 7, noon in 6056 HSSB on the UCSB campus and again April 28, at the same place and time.
