How Can Sound Help Us to Better Understand Early and Medieval China?
How do people use, define, and think about sound? This is what drives Affiliated Scholar Noa Hegesh's research. In her most recent study, she focused on early and medieval China, examining the various relationships between sound and society. How does sound correspond with the seasons and how did it affect an emperor's reign?
In this video, Hegesh talks about her study "Mind the Gap: Acoustical Answers to Cosmological Concerns in First-Century B.C.E. China," she shows how she worked, and provides insight on this exciting field of research.
