Sensory Modernism(s)#2 is a two-day interdisciplinary conference due to be held at the University of Leeds. The event, organised by the university’s Sensory Modernism(s) research group, follows the highly successful inaugural conference event held earlier this year. The conference will seek to address the interrelationship of modernism with sensory perception. We invite abstracts proposals for twenty-minute papers which address this theme, but will welcome proposals which offer an alternative mode of presentation, such as films or performance art.
Poetry and the Senses Workshop (11th December)
As part of the conference, Douglas Caster Cultural Fellow Helen Mort will run a one hour creative writing workshop with prompts and exercises designed to get you thinking differently about how the senses can be used in poetry. No previous creative writing experience is necessary, just a notebook and pen!
Papers may address, but are in no way limited to, the following topics and their relevance to the general scope of the conference:
Literature and the marketplace
Abstracts of 200-300 words, with a brief bio of no more than 200 words, should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11th November 2015.
Conference Organisers: Georgina Binnie, Daniel Kielty, Andrew Moore and Crispian Neill.
