Forms of Talk

Thursday, October 2, 2014 - 2:12pm
ACLA 2015 - accepted panel

"Forms of Talk" takes into account the multifaceted achievements of "talk," as distinct from related categories like speech, voice, discourse, dialogue, communication, or even conversation. Our seminar shares a title with sociologist Erving Goffman's groundbreaking study (1981) on what is known as the "microsociology" of everyday interactions. We are interested in oralities that have been considered too commonplace, informal, accidental, idle, wasteful, or inauthentic to be of literary value.

Afterlife of Discarded Objects

This is an open call for participants in a digital non-fiction storytelling project that explores the stories that discarded objects can tell about our history. The project will examine how people's memories of their childhood games with discarded material objects inform the way they imagine the cultural landscape of their childhood. Material for the project is shared by multiple respondents through crowdsourcing (the stories will be featured on a map to facilitate a multimodal and interactive experience of storytelling). Please read the full description following the link below and take part in assembling a collective tale of the power of imagination to shape history!

The International Conference

Performance studies – literary studies – somaesthetics

With Professor Richard Shusterman as the keynote speaker

Performance studies, whose origins lie in the philosophy of language and theatre studies, have in the past decades become closely connected with a host of other disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, ethnography, cognitive science, and neurolinguistics. This phenomenon, sometimes aptly described as the performative turn, is in full swing at the moment, spreading both in the humanities and far beyond them.
