We dive into what we’re calling the “paratexts” of the reading: the material and contextual circumstances that informed Gallant’s performance. These include an unrecorded and unarchived event that took place the day before; questions about the audience; the theatre; and the physical tape itself. We interview Ann Cowan-Buitenhuis and Carolyn Tate, who attended and contributed to the organization of the two events, and talk to Grazia Merler, a professor at SFU and friend of Gallant’s at the time of the reading. Their contributions provided both memories and facts not captured by the archival remains of the reading.
This network shows us how the absences, or received lack, in one publishing project generates desire for new ones. These panelists will share their personal memories of scenes and magazines as sites of discursive community, reflecting on how one magazine can emerge as a response to another.
This online panel presentation will use the recent volume, Podcasting: New Aural Cultures and Digital Media (ed. Dario Llinares, Neil Fox, Richard Berry) as an opportunity to think and engage in discussion about the emergence of podcasting as a field of critical study.
On Thursday November 12, 7pm ET (4pm PT), join nearly all contributors to CanLit Across Media in a virtual conversation that promises to be one of liveliest and “live” book launches (on Zoom) you may ever attend!

Listening for Labour: Feminist Close Listening in the Literary Audio Archive — Feb 06, 2020 (Events)
What kinds of labour are visible in historical accounts of literary communities? What kinds of labour are audible?
