Gender, Affective Labour, and Community-Building Through Literary Audio Recordings (Post)

Posted

Introduction This article emerged from the “feminist close listening” methodology we devised together during a collaborative listening session in Montreal, December, 2017. We began the practice of listening to recordings together, in real time, as a way of attuning ourselves to the related inquiries that our archives of interest shared. For Karis, this archive is […]

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.

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.
