Sound Effects: the Oral/Aural Dimensions of Literatures in English

University of St Andrews, 5-8 July 2006

Please note an extension to the deadline for proposals for papers.
These will now be considered if received by the 31st of December
2005. Also speakers now include Derek Attridge, Douglas Dunn, John
Miles Foley, Andy Orchard, Patricia Parker and Don Paterson.

Revised call for papers below:

This is the third of an occasional series of conferences organised
  by the School of English at St Andrews University on the media in
  history as a context for literary interpretation. Previous events
  have been The Renaissance Computer (1998) and Re-marking the Text
  (2001), which was itself part of a series of conferences on the
  history of the book presented at Trinity College, Cambridge and
  York. The aim of the present conference is to extend our discussion
  of the literary media from script and printed text back to the most
  fundamental medium of all: speech. Products of the modern electronic
  media are beyond the scope of the conference, though discussion of
  the ways in which these may throw light on earlier forms of
  communication are welcomed.

Papers are invited in any of the following areas: orality and
  literacy; oral transmission; orality and performance; orality and
  print; memory and mnemonic systems; metrics; rhyme; oral formulaic
  poetry; orality and the dramatic text; folk ballads; street ballads;
  street cries and other commercial patter; speech-making and oratory;
  elocution; recitation; speech and education; literary and salon
  readings; religious contexts for the spoken word; speech act theory
  and literary texts.

Proposals for papers (about 200 words) lasting no longer than 20
  minutes should be sent to the organisers by 31 December 2005.
  Further details will also be available at

  conference organisers are Chris Jones csj2_at_st-andrews.ac.uk and Neil
  Rhodes nppr_at_st-andrews.ac.uk. Proposals may also be sent to Sound
  Effects Conference, School of English, University of St Andrews,
