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
