The oral, as a system of communication, while connecting the speaker and the listener in a network of communitic experiences, produces epistemological parameters status for the individual and the community.The three day-international conference will dwell on the questions of epistemology, identity and agency as emanating from the oral within the social—including indigenous and the cosmopolitan life worlds—without inviting/invoking an essential distinction between the two. Moreover, the conference will also address performance as an integral part of orality to understand the link and rupture between the sacred and the profane and between history and memory. It will inaugurate memory as mobilizing cognition and subjectivity.

Medieval Automata and Simulacra: From the Daemonic to the Hydraulic [Medieval Congress at Kalamazoo, May 13–16, 2009]

Puppets, marionettes, golems, androids, automata, moving statues, mannequins, shadow figures—sometimes comic, sometimes creepy, these figures of fun and fright engage us with their similarity, albeit grotesque, to ourselves. Recent researches into the field of medieval automata have convincingly established the the power of these living or life-like machines as both performing objects and as metaphor. They have featured as 'actors', or performing objects, in legend, epic, chanson, and wonder tale; they also have served as metaphors for personal freedom or manipulation, for the presence of a human soul or its terrifying absence.
