Multispecies Storytelling in Intermedial Practices

Written by lisanyberg

I’m happy to have been selected for the international conference Multispecies Storytelling in Intermedial Practices at Linneaus University (Växjö, Sweden). I will present Julia Giertz and my work audio work FEELERS as a participatory performance on Thursday January 24th. If you’re there, please come! A lot of great people will there to share their work, for instance Zeenath Hasan, Vinciane Despret, EvaMarie Lindahl, Signe Johannessen, Åsa Ståhl and Kristina Lindström.

“This conference will explore speculative fields of more-than-human articulations and collaborations in transdisciplinary terrains that teem with what Donna Haraway calls ‘multispecies storytelling’. The conference seeks to investigate the problems and potentials of multispecies storytelling in intermedial practices for contemporary theory, art, music, literature and dance, attempting to negotiate nonhuman others as sometimes eloquent, and sometimes diffuse co-authors of (hi)stories.”
