  • Bio

    Mary Caton Lingold bridges literary, historical, and digital approaches to sonic scholarship. Through her dissertation research examining early Afro-Atlantic musical life in literature (1650-1850), she argues that it is possible to hear the sounds of the pre-recorded past. She is the founder and director of the Sonic Dictionary, an inter-institutional pedagogical experiment and co-editor of the web collection Provoke!: Digital Sound Studies.
