SpokenWeb All Team Meeting — Oct 15, 2021 (Events)

Virtual Participation - RSVP Link Below

Since we are deep into the process of preparing our mid-term report on the work and accomplishments of SpokenWeb so far, we feel it is an important time to hear from partners and task forces about the work that has been undertaken, attempted, and completed since the SpokenWeb partnership network began three years ago. The All Team Meeting will be serve as an opportunity to share reflections on where we were when the project began and where we are now, how time and circumstance have altered, updated, interfered with, enhanced, or transformed our research goals.

SpokenWebPod Listening Party – Mavis Gallant, Part 2: The ‘Paratexts’ of “Grippes and Poche” at SFU — Jun 07, 2021 (Events)

Virtual Participation

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.
