CFP: Text / Sound / Performance: Making in Canadian Space
October 1, 2018
Making in Canadian Space, 25-27 April 2019
Poetry and experimental performances by Canadians have recently appeared on the front lines of experimental activism, on bestseller lists, in partnership with laboratories, on billboards, busses, and clothing/textiles, and on social media platforms. This conference features a keynote address and masterclass seminar on each of the three pillars of the event, alongside panels, roundtables, and performances. University College Dublin (UCD) is a pivotal space where practitioners—Canadian and Indigenous—can connect with Irish writers, scholars, and students attuned to experimental and postcolonial modes of writing. This historic conference invites proposals that might expand, interrogate, decentralize, or destabilize a range of literary practices. The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2018, and notifications of acceptance will be made by mid-December.
Proposals for papers must include not only an abstract (200 words in length), but also a biographical statement (50 words in length). Proposals for panels must include a description of the theme for the panel (200 words in length), complete with an abstract for all presentations (with biographical statements). Please send proposals to Dr. Gregory Betts ([email protected]), the Craig Dobbin Professor of Canadian Studies.Potential conference presenters will be notified of their acceptance by mid-December, 2018.
The conference will be held at UCD, Dublin Ireland, from 25-27 April 2019.
