Alexandra Hui awarded National Science Foundation grant
Mississippi State University assistant history professor Alexandra Hui has been awarded the first major National Science Foundation grant ever presented to a humanities department at the university. Hui won a year-long $155,000 grant to study how the perception of sound has changed over time. Hui plans to study a new type of listening that has developed with the technology and culture of background music. With an interest in the role culture plays in the practice and perpetuation of science, Hui studies how musical tastes influenced German scientists’ experiments on sound sensation.
