Daniel Gilfillan is Associate Professor of German Studies at Arizona State University, Senior Sustainability Scholar in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability, and Faculty Affiliate in Film and Media Studies, Jewish Studies, and English. His primary area of research engages the relationships between sound, media, and the perception of experience. Gilfillan has published widely on German and Austrian radio and sound art, and on the history of the radio in Germany as an experimental art medium (Pieces of Sound: German Experimental Radio, Minnesota, 2009). He is currently working on a book Sound in the Anthropocene: Sustainability and the Art of Sound. This new book explores the role and centrality of sound for understanding the complex interconnections within sustainability practice and the equally complex interactions between humans and other ecosystem populations (animals, landscapes, geologies, and atmospheres)

Reception to follow.

Organized by the Anthropocene crossdisciplinary research cluster of the Simpson Center for the Humanities. LeMenager will also lead a brown-bag seminar on Friday, April 6, at 12 pm in Communications 202. To participate, contact organizers Jason Groves ( or Jesse Oak Taylor (
