Audioliterary Poetry between Performance and Mediatization
Our second international and interdisciplinary conference “Audioliterary Poetry between Performance and Mediatization” will take place in May 2023. It will focus on three interrelated fields: (1) live poetry performances, created through the co-presence of audience and performer; (2) the mediatization of performed poetry, e.g., recordings of events published or posted online; (3) contemporary sound poetry as audio-publications and commissioned works for (radio) broadcasts and/or studio productions.
We welcome interdisciplinary contributions in German and English that, for example, investigate the following topics/research fields: How do the liveness and mediatization of poetry and spoken word performances rely on each other? What new online formats of poetry reading and other forms of presentation have emerged (for example, during the Covid-19 pandemic)? How are platforms such as YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok contributing to the popularization of performed poetry? How is the ubiquity of digital technologies transforming fields like experimental audio and sound poetry? What new forms of publishing and archiving are emerging in these fields?
The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2022, the entire Call for Papers can be accessed via the following link: CfP „Audioliterary Poetry between Performance and Mediatization“
