Event description
Sounding Conflict Symposium.

About this Event

The ‘Sounding Conflict’ research team is delighted to announce details of our forthcoming symposium, the third annual event in the PaCCS (AHRC) funded interdisciplinary research programme ‘Sounding Conflict: From resistance to reconciliation’ (2017-2021). This symposium will explore how sound, music and storytelling variously inform experiences, memories and narratives of conflict from around the globe and consider how they can be instrumental in promoting and sustaining pathways to peace. We will examine how sonic environments, music-making and theatrical practices are reshaping embodied effects of violence and promoting healing and social change. The symposium will examine diverse sonic processes in conflict and post-conflict contexts and consider challenges that they present for academics and practitioners, as they each seek to influence conflict transformation in their respective practices.

The Sounding Conflict symposium and research team brings together scholars from sonic arts, anthropology, political science, English and theatre studies, alongside partner organisations from Northern Ireland, the Middle East and Brazil.

The programme for Day One will include:

  • A keynote address by Dr Olivier Urbain (director of the Min-On Music Research Institute)
  • Project presentations by the 'Sounding Conflict: from resistance to reconciliation' team
  • A panel discussion on Challenges in Arts and Social Practice.
  • A keynote address by Prof J Griffith Rollefson (University College Cork)
  • A screening of ‘Together in Pieces’ introduced by Eileen Walsh and David Dryden.
