Douglas Kahn (Professor of Media and Innovation at the National Institute for Experimental Arts, UNSW Art & Design) is currently giving a series of lectures throughout the United States and Europe that provide an introduction to his thinking surrounding energies in the arts. These talks extend upon the themes of his last book, Earth Sound Earth Signal: Energies and Earth Magnitude in the Arts (University of California Press, 2013) and will outline a number of the ideas that underpin two forthcoming texts: the edited volume Energies in the Arts (MIT Press, March 2019) and the monograph Of Artists and Ecopaths: Ecological Energies from the Cold War to the Warm War (MIT Press).

Supported by the Centre for Research in the Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) and the ERC Project ‘Sound and Materialism in the 19th Century’ (University of Cambridge).
