Conference on Poetics and Discourse: 12-14 December, 2011
Hosted by Victoria University (Melbourne, Australia) at its City Campus
With the theme of ‘Testimony, Witness, Authority: the politics and poetics of experience’, the conference brings together practitioners and researchers in a forum to explore the variety of ways experience is reproduced and cultures built through oral, written and other verbal media.
To be held at Victoria University’s city campus in Australia’s cultural capital, Melbourne, the 2011 conference will feature language, voice and text from scholars, composers and performers.
Building on the previous OWOVM at the University of Saskatchewan in 2008, this conference is for both practitioners and researchers in discourse and the language arts and in related fields. It expressly provides a forum for explorations of Indigeneity and autochthony, orality and literacy, and ideologies around cultural reproduction. It brings together composers and performers across creative fields including language, voice, and text, as well as scholars from a range of fields in the creative arts, humanities, and social sciences.
