Call fot Papers
An international, multi-disciplinary three-day conference to be hosted at the
Writing about living or recently deceased figures presents unique challenges for scholars, journalists, and creative practitioners alike. This conference seeks to nurture dialogue between a range of different artistic fields concerning writing about contemporary artists. It encompasses disciplines including music, dance, theatre, film, digital arts, and creative writing as well as biographical, analytical, socio-contextual, promotional, ethnographic, and other types of discourse. It will focus upon the act of writing and the strategies, ideologies, and assumptions contained therein, as well as the boundaries as to what constitutes "writing" about contemporary artists in its multifarious forms, considering creative practice approaches alongside more conventional representations.
All types of artists, from all styles, genres, and cultures, may be considered under the aegis of the conference, including (but not limited to): classical, popular and world musics, contemporary dance and theatre, musical theatre, biopics and documentary film, digital media, and creative writing. The expectation is that the majority of papers will address innovative, distinctive, or otherwise leading work by living or recently deceased artists active within the last c.25 years.
20-minute papers (plus 10 minutes for questions) are invited on any aspect of writing about contemporary artists. Details of other possibilities for panels, roundtables, or alternative formats, can be found at the conference website: http://www.ias.surrey.ac.uk/workshops/artistswriting/cfp.php . The deadline for submission of proposals is 29 May 2017.
Details of keynote speakers, roundtables, and performances associated with the conference will be announced shortly, on the conference webpage.
Enquiries may be directed to the Chair of the Conference Committee, Dr Christopher Wiley (c.wiley –at- surrey.ac.uk).
