Critical/Fictional investigations: Site, Sound and Listening brought together interdisciplinary scholars to share research on the politics and poetics of place. Writing, sound and listening both to and through the environment fused informal conversations and the exchange of academic practices across writing, performance, sound art and literary scholarship. The event included Professor Lytle Shaw (University of New York), specialist in poetry, site-specificity and experimental historiography. Alongside a reading from his new publication, Shaw also ran a writing workshop with attendees.
Invited speakers/artists at the event included:
Prof Lytle Shaw
Dr Rebecca Collins
Dr Natalie Ferris
Dr Jane McKie
Dr Alexander Campbell
This event was held at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop and attended by artists and researchers motivated by the emergence of creative approaches to think through the complexity of our contemporary political condition.
