Telling Stories: Theories & Criticism

Telling Stories: Theories and Criticism
20 April 2007
University of Loughborough, UK

Website: http://www.lboro.ac.uk/departments/ac/mainpages/Research/staff%20groups/arts.htm

Deadline for Abstracts: 31 July 2006

New modes of critical writing are challenging conventional expectations of meaning and objectivity through narrative/counter–narrative, authorial presence, style, language, and rhetoric. This development is also present in the visual arts. Writings, which offer alternative forms to synthesis, and the linear and conclusive, challenge the boundaries between theory and literature and between the rational and subjective. Speakers are invited to explore the performative exchange across verbal and experiential disciplines.

This conference forms part of a series that will examine the manner and structure of narration across a range of contemporary practices (e.g. art object, film, photography, criticism). Keynote speakers include:

  • Martha Buskirk (Montserrat College of Art)
  • Yve Lomax (Royal College of Art)
  • Jane Rendell (Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL)
  • John Kear (University of Kent)

Proposals for 20 minute papers / presentations based on new research (with a view to publication) are now invited
