Harald Gaski talkTEXT/SOUND/PERFORMANCE: Making in Canadian Space, 25-27  April  2019

 TEXT/SOUND/PERFORMANCE offers a crucial  opportunity  to  engage  with  the  diverse  range  of  innovative  work  coming  out  of  Canada  today. Poetry and  experimental  performances  by  Canadians  have  recently  appeared  on  the  front  lines  of  environmental  and  political  activism,  at  the  top  of  lists  for  international  bestsellers,  in  partnership  with  laboratories,  on  billboards,  buses  and clothing/textiles,  and  on  social  media  platforms.  This  conference  is  going  to  feature  a  keynote  address  and  masterclass  seminar  on  each  of  the  three  pillars  of  the  event,  alongside  panels,  roundtables,  and  performances.  We  remain open  to  other  forms  of  engagement,  and we  encourage  variant,  nontraditional  propositions. The  event  is  scheduled  to  take  place  at  University  College  Dublin (UCD),  a  pivotal  space  for  practitioners,  Canadian  and  Indigenous,  to  connect  with  Irish  writers,  scholars  and  students,  all attuned  to  experimental  and  postcolonial  modes  of  writing.  We  invite  proposals  that  might  expand,  trouble,  decentralize,  destabilize,  or  interrogate  literary  practices:
