Questioning difficult perspectives in ordinary spaces

A lecture by Jordan Glendenning
1 June 2019, 2:30pm

In an expanding online world, we use social media platforms every day for the simple acts of staying in touch, reviewing local businesses, or even for selling unwanted items. But in these ordinary online spaces, we often don’t expect fictional tales. This talk will explore fiction presented through ordinary spaces, how difficult perspectives are used and how this impacts an audience. How do we achieve meaningful engagement with art in spaces where we do not expect to find it?

‘Where art and words collide’ lecture series

What is literature? What is art? What is beautiful? The relationship between artist, author, and audience is fraught with uneasy expectations of finding ‘meaning’. However, both literature and art thrive in places where art and words collide and meaning breaks apart to reveal alternative worlds and new approaches. From a historical look at violence in literature, to the places where narrative threads turn into digital tapestries, words trade meaning to become sounds, and perspective reframes creative approaches to become new art.

This series of lectures explores art and literature as interactive spaces for posing questions rather than imposing meaning.
