CFP: Ivor Gurney: Poetry and Music (UK) (2/1/07; 9/9/07)

Monday, October 9, 2006 - 2:56pm
Dr T. Tate

This conference explores both the poetry and the music of Ivor Gurney.
Papers are invited on either aspect of his work, and we particularly
welcome papers which look at both his writing and his composition. We are
also interested in papers which look at the context within which Gurney was
writing -- music history, literary history, medical history, his literary
and musical circles or influences, etc.

The conference will be held in Cambridge, England, 9 to 10 September 2007.
We hope to include a concert of Gurney's songs by tenor Andrew Kennedy.

CFP: Aesthetics and Radical Politics (UK) (12/15/06; 2/2/07)

Friday, October 6, 2006 - 8:00pm

Fri 2nd Feb 2007, University of Manchester

Sponsored by the SGSA

There has always been a strong connection historically between
aesthetics and radical politics, and this is no less true for the
global justice movement's current preoccupation with cultural
approaches to political action. This conference seeks to bring
radical artists, activists, theorists and academics together to
discuss past and present convergences between the theories and
practices of artists and writers and the theories and practices of
movements for radical social change.

An International Conference to be held at the University of Caen
Basse-Normandie - France -
         14 & 15 June 2007 -

    A (land)scape does not just spring up into existence, and is no absolute
either. In it, through it, a certain culture, and desires express
themselves, a subject is speaking, discourses are interwoven and
disseminated. Our conference will endeavour to sketch the many
crisscrossings which happen in a landscape.
