Steel Associate Professor of English\, Brooklyn College\, CUNY\nApril 14\, 2017 – Union South TITU – 4pm – 5:30pm \nFor medieval writers\, “muteness” might mean the absence of sound\, but it just as well might mean a senseless sound. My paper builds out from this observation to explore three aspects of muteness: mute people\, mute objects\, and mute animals\, and three possible responses to each. The first\, a “liberal” approach\, explores the schoolboy “muteness” of Aquinas; the second\, the “posthuman” approach\, Augustine’s commentary on the voice of mute stones; and the third\, a disability and ecological studies approach\, the gestures of noisy birds in a story of Saint Cuthbert and the ravens. Ultimately\, thinking with the work of Mel Y. Chen and Rosamarie Garland-Thomson\, I will argue for “misfit ecology” that decenters questions of muteness and agency in favor of an imperfect making do. \nPart of the Fourth Annual Medieval Studies Colloquium\nPresented by the Graduate Association of Medieval Studies \nApril 14\, 2017\nUnion South TITU\nUniversity of Wisconsin-Madison \n9AM Coffee and Conversation\n10AM – 11:30AM Morning Panel: Survival and Afterlife\n12PM – 1:30PM Lunchtime Workshop (by RSVP)*\n2PM – 3:30PM Afternoon Panel: History and Culture\n4PM-5:15PM Keynote Lecture followed by Q&A\, Dr. Karl Steel\, Associate Professor of English\, Brooklyn College\, CUNY\, “Medieval Muteness: Animals\, Disability\, and Objects”\n5:15PM-6PM Reception \n*RSVP to Maxwell Gray at mgray5 (at) wisc (dot) edu for a seat at the workshop and to receive the readings \n  \n URL:http://soundstudies.wisc.edu/event/karl-steel-keynote-lecture/ LOCATION:1308 W Dayton St\, Madison\, WI\, 53715\, United States ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg:http://soundstudies.wisc.edu/wp-content/uploads/2017/04/dsc03868.jpg END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
