American Studies at Rutgers University-Newark presents

Coffee Conversation with Kate Doyle

Wednesday February 9, 2022
2:30-3:30 p.m.
Location: Online via Zoom — RSVP for link.

Join us for our ongoing American Studies “Coffee Conversations” — informal conversations with faculty sharing their research, career experiences, and beyond. Get to know your classmates and faculty with this series of get-togethers that will take place every month throughout the year.

Kate Doyle is an Assistant Professor of Music in the Department of Arts, Culture & Media and Affiliate Faculty in the American Studies Program at Rutgers University-Newark. Kate’s writing and engaged scholarship explores the performance and ideas of music in conceptual and experimental art practices — particularly through cybernetic frameworks, which offer models for thinking about observer and listener relationships to systems of culture and environment. In pedagogy and practice, Kate seeks to reject the dissection of knowledge into disciplinary territories in favor of movement among diverse ideas, topics, and methodologies. Beyond and in connection with her writing work, she experiments with new modes of scholarly dissemination at the intersection of performance and creative archiving. She works actively within the American Society for Cybernetics and has been an invited speaker and/or collaborator at the Library of Congress, the Chelsea College of Arts at the University of the Arts London, the Dia Art Foundation, and the Festival of Original Theater.

Look out for our April coffee conversation with Laura Triano!
