In the 2010 Oscar-winning Best Documentary Feature film The Cove, the film's director Louie Psihoyos describes on-screen the film's approach and activist goals in documenting the slaughter of dolphins in Japan's Taiji: "There was two parts to the mission. The first one was to get the auditory experience. . . . The second mission, what we call the full orchestra," involved installing numerous cameras and microphones underwater and around the cove in which the slaughter took place. "I wanted to have a three-dimensional experience," Psihoyos then explains in voice-over, "with what's going on in that lagoon. I wanted to hear everything that the dolphins were doing, everything that the whalers were saying. The effort wasn't just to show the slaughter.

Rutgers University, New Brunswick, NJ

Rutgers University announces "Science and Method in the Humanities," an interdisciplinary graduate symposium to be held on March 2, 2012, with keynote speakers Peter Dear (Cornell University) and Barbara Herrnstein Smith (Duke University).

The aim of the conference is to explore questions of method and methodology in the sciences and in humanities scholarship that engages the sciences. This one-day event will bring together scholars working across that curricular divide for an interdisciplinary discussion of science and method, ranging from the historical development of scientific methods and their various historical re-articulations to broader concerns of methodology across the humanities.
