Event Description

Call for Participation


Trade, 1 Thoresby Street, Nottingham, United Kingdom, NG1 1AJ.

Saturday 13 July 2013
12.30pm - 18.30pm

Call for paper-based and performative presentations and provocations to be included in the symposium entitled, HECKLER: Tactics to heckle, hiss, howl and holler organised by Loughborough University School of the Artsʼ Lee Campbell and Mel Jordan in association with Trade, Nottingham.

The symposium will explore the potential of the heckler as a speaker that can offer a revised understanding of social exchanges within contemporary debates on participation, linguistics, ethics and communication. Artists’ Campbell and Jordan argue that the heckler, a person who  disrupts performances, speeches and public addresses should be considered as a metaphorical figurehead of impoliteness.

Keynote speakers:

• Daniel Z. Kadar, Professor of English Language and Linguistics, Director, Centre for Intercultural Politeness Research, University of Huddersfield. Provisional paper title: ʻThe heckler's 'impoliteness': A mimetic-relational perspectiveʼ
• Peter Bond (Senior Lecturer, Performance theory and practice, Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design). Provisional paper title: ʻOff-sideʼ.
• Dr. Ian Bruff (Political Scientist, Lecturer in International Relations at Loughborough Universityʼs Department for Politics, History and International Relations).

Other contributors include Dr Claire Makhlouf Carter (Artist), Adrian Lee (Artist), Andrew Brown (Artist and Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Nottingham Trent University, UK), Robin Bale (Artist and PhD candidate) and Joanne Lee (Artist/writer, Senior Lecturer in Fine Art, Nottingham Trent University, UK).

Proposals for presentations are welcome which interrogate what constitutes the heckler and how his/her actions may have significance within multiple contemporary discourses / study disciplines.

HECKLER will also be taking place at Artsadmin, London in September 2013.
