This class will explore various aspects of response and recovery in the aftermath of a cultural heritage disaster, specifically as they relate to audio materials. Members of the class will select materials, oversee several events to simulate disasters, evaluate and recover the damaged materials using a variety of strategies and ultimately create a series of web based tutorials to disseminate what they have learned to a wider community. The burning will be done off-campus, and at least one class session will require traveling, most likely to East Austin. Several class sessions will require working with wet and charred materials.
