  • Nicole Mara Gounalis

    Nicole Mara Gounalis

    Thinking Matters Fellow

    BioNicole serves as a Thinking Matters Fellow. She received her Ph.D. in Italian, with a Ph.D. minor in Slavic Languages and Literatures, from Stanford in June 2017. Her research focuses on the interplay of art, culture, and politics in Italy from the early twentieth-century to the present. Nicole is currently working on a book-length adaptation of her dissertation, which offers an alternative intellectual history of the politically-engaged works of neorealist film and literature that emerged in Italy post-WWII. The project examines the reintroduction of politics into mass culture through the lens of the Futurist historical avant-garde and Antonio Gramsci’s approach to aesthetics. Prior to joining Thinking Matters, she taught extensively at Stanford and at Notre Dame de Namur University. When not teaching, reading, or writing, she can usually be found at the movies, swimming laps, or volunteering with a local cat rescue organization.

    Sean Russell Hallowell

    Thinking Matters Fellow

    BioA musician and composer, Sean Russell Hallowell received his Ph.D. from Columbia University in 2013, where he wrote a dissertation on the aesthetico-metaphysical valences of compositional tradition in European music from the late-fourteenth to late-sixteenth centuries. He comes to Stanford University having spent the 2016-2017 academic year at the University of California, Berkeley, where, as Lecturer in the History and Literature of Western Music, he taught two courses of his own design - one on historical practices of composition from pre-existing materials, the other on trans-historical theories of the music of the spheres (according to which natural phenomena governed by numerical proportion, such as the orbiting of planets, produce a species of music). His own music, composed in the electro-acoustic tradition, draws upon ideas from the history of musique concrète as well as that of the philosophy of time to explore the phenomenology of time in music and the relationship between time and identity perceived through musical form. An interdisciplinary thinker by training, as an undergraduate at Brown University he concentrated in comparative literature and music, and, as a graduate student at Columbia, he spent five years teaching Music Humanities, the university's core curriculum course in music history and appreciation. As a Fellow in Stanford's Thinking Matters program for the 2017-2018 academic year he will teach THINK 43: What is Love, THINK 59: Worlds of Sound, and THINK 45: Thinking about the Universe.
