Jason Camlot partners with Katherine McLeod, affiliate assistant professor of English and a researcher with SpokenWeb. Together they will transform archived poetry readings from the SpokenWeb project into a remix of voice, rhythm and movement.

Hosted by Deanna Fong, a long-time SpokenWeb collaborator, this event unites McLeod’s passion for flamenco with her academic interest in archival literary performance. It is all set to an original score composed by Camlot using archival sounds from past literary events.

“My doctoral and postdoctoral research has all been on poetry readings and performances in Canada,” McLeod says. “This event is an opportunity to put that research into practice by performing archival recordings of poetry readings.”
