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 Two will include:

  • A keynote address by Laura Hassler (founder and director of Musicians Without Borders)
  • A workshop on 'Image Theatre'
  • A workshop on Creative Methodologies, with practitioners working on 'Photo-voice', sonic arts and graphic research methodologies.
  • A performative audio journey screening by Dr Niall Rea (TheatreofPluck) of 'So I Can Breathe this Air' (by Shannon Yee with the Rainbow Project)
  • A presentation by of the ethnographic film 'Behind the Performance: Tufo of Mafalala' by Professor Pedro Rebelo, Matilde Meireles and Iñigo Sánchez.
