[UPDATE] Special Topics Session: "Productive Silences" (Annual RMMLA Conference October 6-8, 2011)

Friday, January 28, 2011 - 3:04pm
Pamela J. Rader/ RMMLA 2011 in Scottsdale, AZ

Special Topics Panel: Productive Silences
History and the history-making process, while seeking to remember, often call attention to singularity of perspective, which results in silencing the memories of survivors. Literature then steps in to fill the gaps or the lacuna of silence. In this imaginative, fictional realm, silence and those silenced by historians, dictators, and forgetfulness find agency. Understood as a form of resistance, silence becomes a literary ruse: a voice or a perspective that once lacked agency now finds a place on the page.
Narratives that use ruses of hidden or lost documents (such as letters, journals, and oral testimonies) are particularly interesting.

The twelfth annual Graduate English Conference at Southern Connecticut State University seeks submissions for "Isms and Ologies: Reading, Teaching, Theorizing, Writing."

The Oxford Brookes Popular Music Research Unit, in association with The Royal Musical Association and The Oxford International Centre for Publishing Studies, is holding a one-day symposium exploring links between music and publishing in its broadest sense on April 11th, 2011. This event is intended to bring together academics, journalists and publishers to explore this previously neglected area which offers exciting opportunities to tap into current concerns about the effects of the internet on the dissemination of music, to explore how our experience of music is shaped by publications relating to it, and to explore more broadly the important issue of the relationship between music and commerce, both in a historical context and in the present.
