Flash Symposium - Short Papers on Short Fiction

When? Tuesday 24th May 2011 6-9 pm
Where? Birkbeck, University of London, Room B03, 43 Gordon Square

Ideal for the commute, the lunch-hour, the stolen moment: shortness necessitates the perfect user-friendly format, arguably suited to the fast paced nature of everyday contemporary urban living. At the same time such compression of structure and content allows for moments of haiku-like contemplation. This symposium has been curated to celebrate all that is great about the short form.

The first half will feature five minute papers on short forms, from fiction to poetry, from comics to GIFs. The speakers are research students from across the humanities and colleges of the University of London. The second half will be devoted to a panel of invited guests; practitioners from different media who will discuss aspects of their own work, concluding with a Q&A.

The papers will be collected for a special issue of postgraduate journal Dandelion, On Brevity, for autumn publication, and the discussion will be recorded for podcasting.

Chair for papers: Bianca Leggett (Birkbeck)
Papers - Henderson Downing (Birkbeck); Holly Pester (Birkbeck); Ernesto Priego (UCL); Daniel Rourke (Goldsmiths); Matt Sangster (Royal Holloway)
Chair for panel: Ariel Kahn (Roehampton/London Met Film School)
Speakers - Andy Poyiadgi (film-maker, Schizofredric); Tom Humberstone (comics artist/editor, Solipsistic Pop); Heidi James (writer, Carbon, The Mesmerist's Daughter); Geoff Ryman, 253, Air).

Organised by: Zara Dinnen and Tony Venezia - Contemporary Fiction Seminar
