Call for proposals: Imagining the Non-Present
The annual Orpheus Doctoral Conference, organised by the second year docARTES PhD students, will take place on 28 and 29 May 2020. The call for proposals is now open. Proposals for presentations of any kind are welcomed: from scholarly papers to performances.
The Orpheus Institute invites proposals (300 words maximum) for presentations of any kind, from scholarly papers to performances. The conference will open at 15:30 (Central European Time) on Thursday with a keynote address by Dr. Ruth Byrne. Composer/performer Jennifer Walshe will give a second keynote address on Friday and the conference will close on Friday at 18:00. All proposals (paper proposals, artistic proposals, and performative-paper proposals) will consist of 20-minute presentations with ten minutes of discussion. A concert—or series of proposed 20-minute performances—is contemplated for Thursday evening. An open, collaborative spirit of inquiry is encouraged throughout.
The deadline for receipt of proposals is Saturday 29 February 2020, 23:59 CET. Applicants will be notified of the decisions in March 2020. Enquiries should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
