Professor Caroline Bergvall, PhD, Dartington College of Arts/University of Plymouth, 2000Global Professorial FellowEmail: email@example.comWebsite: http://www.carolinebergvall.comProfileResearchPublicationsPublic EngagementPerformanceProfileI am a poet and an interdisciplinary artist with a special focus on multilingual and context-led projects as well as transhistoric approaches. I am the author of a trilogy of texts and performance projects Meddle English (2005), Drift (2011) and Alisoun Sings (2019). I have shown my performances and installations both in the UK and internationally and was awarded a Cholmondeley Award 2017 as well as being the first recipient of the art literary prize Bernard Heidsieck-Centre Pompidou Paris 2017. I am also an Art Practice Mentor and founder of the online Solitary to Solidary Arts Lab to support writers and artists. My appointment at QMUL consists in creating a research project that focuses on interdisciplinary conversation, modes of listening, and voice processing. It will build on a series of workshops and conversations with various kinds of participants around material exchange, vocal poetics, translocal trajectories, migratory birdsong, and creative systems of engagement. The workshops will take place indoors and outdoors. The research concludes in 2025 with a public and tourable performance event: a networked, processed and polyvocal conversation.
