Hillel Schwartz is a poet, translator and independent scholar who focuses on cultural history in his publications. His most recent work is entitled Making Noise: From Babel to the Big Bang and Beyond and was published in October of 2011. This work focuses on the cultural history of noise in the West including examinations of urban noise, voices, folklore, hearing loss, isolation and noise control.
Schwartz describes this talk as “an exploration in word, music, and image across three centuries and three continents of that which is (almost) inaudible and therefore incredibly noisy.”
