Panel 18 - Chronotopes during crisis: a sound-image-letter correspondence

Convenors: Alastair Lomas (University of Manchester), Charlotte Hoskins (University of Oxford), Andrea Bordoli (University of Bern)

Short abstract: Do crises disrupt normative notions of the ‘chronotope’ - the spatio-temporal coordinates in a given narrative? To explore how current global phenomena are reconfiguring relations to time and space, we invite contributions of sound-image-letters as a form of experimental correspondence.
