SOUND::GENDER::FEMINISM::ACTIVISM

CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS

Post-graduate Research Event
London College of Communication, University of the Arts London
May 17th 2012

We invite submissions for 10 minute contributions relating to aspects of 
research in the context of sound, in its various creative and 
theoretical forms, and gender. This is an open call and we welcome 
responses from all relevant disciplines and will accept a variety of 
formats from short academic presentations to more experimental 
contributions.

We are looking to share research with a view to establishing a network 
of researchers and practitioners working in these areas. The final 
format of the event will be generated around the contributions received.

Please send expressions of interest, including the theme, topic and 
format of your presentation, of around 100 words and a short biography 
of no more than 100 words by March 16th 2012 to soundartsevent at crisap.org

supported by CRiSAP http://www.crisap.org/

This event follows on from

Her Noise Archive Symposium
3-5 May 2012
Tate Modern

A three day event investigating feminist discourses in sound, launching 
with a performance and talk by Pauline Oliveros. The symposium, which 
brings together contributions by leading artists, performers, 
theoreticians and writers aims to provide a platform to further develop 
these emergent feminist discourses in sound and music, with an emphasis 
on tactics that challenge and / or infiltrate canonical readings. The 
event marks the donation of the Her Noise Archive to University of the 
Arts London Archives and Special Collections housed at London College of 
Communication, and is realised as a collaboration between CRiSAP 
(Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice), Electra and Tate.
