Text / Sound / Performance – Making in Canadian Space

April 25, 2019April 27, 2019

Scholars, students, writers, and community partners will gather in Dublin, Ireland for a three-day conference on the theme of TEXT/SOUND/PERFORMANCE: Making in Canadian Space. There will be a keynote address and masterclass workshop on each of the three pillars of the conference, alongside academic and creative panels,s roundtables, and performances. We will also offer a fifth masterclass on digitization and archival practices, in collaboration with the Irish Poetry Reading Archive (UCD) and the SpokenWeb Project (Concordia). Other forms of nontraditional engagement, including performances, thematic unconference-style discussions, and exhibitions, will supplement the panels, classes, and plenary talks. The conference will feature papers and presentations that expand, trouble, decentralize, destabilize, or interrogate literary practices and performance. Canadian and Indigenous authors and scholars will dialogue with Irish authors and scholars about the legacies of experimentation and decolonization.
