In Fall 2015, Professor Steph Ceraso hosted an exciting new course on "Sound, Composition, and Culture" that culminated with "a multisensory dining event to inspire students to think holistically about how sound works with other senses to shape experiences." The event, sponsored by the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) and Design, Cultures, and Creative (DCC) program at the University of Maryland, College Park, encouraged students to consider critically the sounds that we experience in our daily encounters. Recently, this project was highlighted by UMBC News in an extended story outlining the dining event and conversation of sonic research in which Dr. Ceraso is a valuable part. Congratulations to Dr. Ceraso and her seminar students for the exceptional work and for giving us a fresh perspective on sound and culture in the digital world.
