Speaker biography
Maral Attar-Zadeh is a PhD student at the Faculty of English. Her AHRC-funded project examines commensality as a site of, and metaphor for, ethical relationality in seventeenth-century English literature. Aside from her research, Maral has an active interest in keyboard performance – she received an Associate Diploma in Piano Performance from the Royal Conservatory of Canada in 2019 and has been studying the organ since arriving at Cambridge.

Episode summary
This first episode of the podcast introduces the field of distributed cognition, especially as it comes into contact with research in the Arts and Humanities, and sketches out some of the main topics and questions with which the event series will be engaging.

This event series aims to reflect on how distributed models of cognition apply to, and change our perception of, musical engagement. Growing interest in music-making practices outside the normative, and ideally sterilised, settings of the concert hall and the studio has already highlighted the extent to which ‘musicking’ creates living, distributed assemblages out of performers, listeners, instruments, and architectural spaces. In each session of the series, the academics, performers, and practitioners interviewed will share their reflections on the way the language and insights of distributed cognition engage and enrich models of aural encounter in fields such as music performance, environmental studies, history, religious studies, and literature.
