'Contested Resonances' Virtual Conference 29-30 July 2021
Contested Resonances: Creativity, Listening and Performance in Conflict Transformation
Our interdisciplinary Conference was hosted virtually online by the Senator George, J. Mitchell Institute for Global Peace Security and Justice, Queen's University Belfast. It examined conflict and post-conflict contexts through sound in performative practice.
Themes included: peacebuilding efforts by music-based community arts initiatives; sonic-arts and theatrical re-soundings of conflict; creative and musical interventions in conflict and post-conflict societies; sound-based methodologies for exploring the narratives and everyday experiences of people in post-conflict contexts. Thank you to everyone who joined us and took part.
