"More Than Meets the Ear: Sound and Short Fiction" (international conference)

19.09.2019 00:00

19 - 21 September 2019

Conference in Affiliation with the European Network for Short Fiction Research

NEW: Programme

Sound is being celebrated as a source of insight in the humanities. Foregrounding the sense condemned to play second fiddle by Plato, scholars are tapping into sonic, auditive and aural phenomena and their technological reproduction, mapping practices of sound production, exploring soundscapes of different periods, compiling cultures and histories of hearing and listening.

Drama, poetry and the long narrative form have given rise to investigations of literary representation of sound on all levels, yet so far no study has been produced that focuses exclusively on short, short short, very short and flash fiction. As a first step towards closing this gap, this ENSFR-affiliated conference invites contributors to turn their attention to sound & short fiction.

Keynote: Jorge Sacido Romero (University of Santiago de Compostela)
19th Sep, 6 pm (Alte Kapelle)
