Soundings and Re-Soundings: a theme and variations

Soundings and Re-Soundings: a theme and variations

Professorial Platform Event & Publication

by Cathy Lane

at London College of Communication

27 April 2017

How is memory formed and reformed? How do pieces of history get lost? What happens when we only hear one side of a story or when the sonic traces of other perspectives have disappeared?

Cathy Lane works with the sounding out of individual and collective memories that have been overlooked or muted. These may relate to place, family, labour or aspects of social, cultural and political life. 

This professorial platform took the form of a multichannel performative lecture and was accompanied by a publication.
