‘The story does what no theorem can quite do. It may not be like ‘real
life’ in the superficial sense: but it sets before us an image of what
reality may well be like at some more central region.’

- C. S. Lewis, On Stories

C. S. Lewis is renowned the world over for his startling array of works,
ranging from theology to literary criticism and to fiction as diverse as
The Cosmic Trilogy or The Chronicles of Narnia. Perhaps chief among the
facets that draw readers to his works is his capacity to imagine â€" and
envision â€" other worlds, and through them to put reality back in touch
with the fullness of ‘imaginative life’.

Acting Out - A symposium on Screen Performance, Inference and Interpretation

20th March 2009, University of Reading

Keynote Speaker - Andrew Klevan, (St. Anne's College, University of Oxford)
- Film Performance: From Achievement to Appreciation (Wallflower Press)

This one-day symposium seeks to provide a forum for scholars of screen

film. We would like to explore how we draw out performance through an
interrogation of the relationship between performance, inference and
interpretation.

CFP: [General] Sound, Silence and Literature

Garrett Stewart in Reading Voices: Literature and the Phonotext writes:
“When we read to ourselves, our ears hear nothing. When we read, however,
we listen.” Whether it is listening to one’s reading voice, music, film or
drama - audition plays a central role in how we engage with art. This
interdisciplinary symposium invites papers that explore the ways in which
sound and silence are formally manipulated and represented in art. While
vision has been the dominant mode for understanding truth and knowledge in
modernity, this one-day symposium will examine alternative narratives that
reveal the cultural significance of auditory perception.
