A handful of gleanings are known as a ‘songle’, a word that also gives its name to a component of an electrical switch. Electrically and agriculturally, songles delimit and define fields: a songle relay alters an electromagnetic current; a songle of gleaned sheaves alters the flows of agricultural production.

Proposals are invited for ten minute presentations to form part of a session on gleaning, or, SONGLE, as part of the programme at the 2019 ASLE-UKI Biennial, ‘Co-emergence, Co-creation, Co-existence’ (http://asle.org.uk/).

Proposals considering cultural representations, practices or figures of gleaning, either historical or contemporary, are welcomed from scholars and practitioners across disciplines, including creative contributions, and creative-critical dialogues.

Please send abstracts of no more than 250 words, accompanied by a 50 word bio, and any additional or technical requirements, to Natalie Joelle at natalie@gleaning.info by 1st March 2019.
