ShortCuts: Listening to Footnotes (Post)

Posted

In this ShortCuts blog post, podcast producers Kate Moffatt, Kandice Sharren, and Michelle Levy have selected an audio clip from a Mavis Gallant’s reading in which she spontaneously provides contextual information during her reading, and they have reflected upon how the experience of a ‘footnote’ can differ in print and audio formats.

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.

Decolonizing “Mayakovsky”: radiofreerainforest and the digital archive — Feb 11, 2021 (Events)

Simon Fraser University - https://concordia-ca.zoom.us/j/9445298041

Clint Burnham discusses the radiofreerainforest digital archive at SFU, focusing on the Four Horsemen’s poem “Mayakovsky,” and asking what it means to listen to sound poetry – that is, in this case an LP, broadcast on a community radio station in 1989, and since preserved as a digital object.

Vancouver, BC - The SpokenWeb Symposium 2019 - David Mowafaghian World Arts Centre

Opening Plenary of SpokenWeb Symposium 2019 For a very long time now, the United States has—audaciously and impossibly—labored under the illusion that it is a “colorblind” nation: that skin color simply “doesn’t matter” when it comes to employment, or schooling, or opportunity of any sort.  That it is possible to “not see color” when it comes to intimate relationships, to hiring or firing, […]
