Conference – Troubling Time: An Exploration of Temporality in the Arts

Registration is now open for Troubling Time, a two-day conference on 1st-2nd June 2017 led by Drama and Screen PGRs at Manchester: http://troublingtime.weebly.com/

The conference aims to consider time and the multifaceted ways it manifests in and structures the arts – in film, performance, television, theatre, video games, music, dance, live broadcast, and visual art, to name just a few. At first glance, the arts appear to be unavoidably time-bound, largely dependent on our understandings of chronological time and space. However, the arts are also capable of finding ways for different types of temporalities to irrupt, to disrupt, to resist, and to bubble beyond the surface.

Troubling Time is an interdisciplinary conference that aims to bring together postgraduate students, early career researchers and established academics to explore the issues of time and temporality in the arts.

Keynote
Professor David Wiles (University of Exeter)
