At SGFA::2016 we will seek to listen together to the complex interplay between the auditory and social protocols of White Noise. Working out from white noise’s original sonic conception of a random frequency, broad-based signal that seemingly masks everything else, white noise is, increasingly, all around us. As Jennifer Stoever-Ackerman explains, white noise has become a “sonic protocol,” a socio-cultural norm transmitted as an often sub-audible yet ubiquitous frequency, establishing and maintaining perceptual limits of what and who can be heard.

As in previous years, SGFA::2016 will feature a mixture of live performance, audio and video work and scholarly papers from presenters including Annie Goh, Anuka Ramischwili-Schafer; Barby Asante and Side Room; Dan Scott; Gabriella Beckhurst; Gilles Aubry; Invasorix; Marika Pratley; Miriam Schickler; Natasha Lall; Nicola Woodham; Paul Tourle; Poulomi Desai; Rebecca Bruton; Rommi Smith; Seda Ergül and Tuna Erdem (Istanbul Queer Art Collective); Shanti Suki Osman and Syma Tariq.

We are delighted to announce that our keynote presenters will be Christine Eyene, Research Fellow in Contemporary Art at the University of Central Lancashire and Professor Vron Ware, Kingston University Chair of Sociology and Gender.

We have endeavoured to keep registration costs as low as possible.
