Session one of a six-session course: Steve Seid.

How does one read silence? What is the physiology of silence? What might silence look like? This six-session course offers an interdisciplinary look at the nature of silence in the human experience. We will explore the role of silence in film, music, art, psychology, spirituality, neuroscience, and politics with six guests: Silence co-curator Steve Seid; Lucinda Barnes, curator in charge of the Berkeley presentation; neurobiologist David Presti; linguist George Lakoff; composer/musician Paul Dresher; and writer Susan Griffin, author of Chorus of Stones.
