Troubling Time: An Exploration of Temporality in the Arts
University of Manchester
Friday, 2nd June 2017.
This conference aims to consider time and the multifaceted ways it manifests in and structures the arts - in film, performance, television, theatre, video games, music, dance, live broadcast, and visual art, to name just a few. At first glance, the arts appear to be unavoidably time-bound, largely dependent on our understandings of chronological time and space. However, the arts are also capable of finding ways for different types of temporalities to irrupt, to disrupt, to resist, and to bubble beyond the surface.
Troubling Time is an interdisciplinary conference that aims to bring together postgraduate students, early career researchers and established academics to explore the issues of time and temporality in the arts.
The organisers of this interdisciplinary conference warmly invite proposals for 20 minute presentations/provocations/performances/creative approaches to time in the arts. We actively encourage contributions that engage practically with their duration, with the aim of fostering methodological diversity.
Topics include but are not limited to:
• Issue of time and medium specificity
• Modalities and methodologies of research into time and the arts
• Homogenous/heterogeneous time
• Time and space
• Haunting or possession by the past
• Approaches to the archive and time
• Re-enactment and re-embodiment
• Documenting the present
• Futurity or lack thereof
• Ageing - growing up and growing old
• Indexicality and the arts
• Linear and non-linear time
• Time as politics
Please send your abstract (250 words), its title, and a short biography (100 words) to email@example.com by Friday, 3rd March 2017. Successful applicants will be notified by the end of March. At the moment, the organisers are envisioning a one-day event but there is the possibility of extending it to two days if the level of response requires it.
