PANELS

The organising committee of the conference invites proposals for presentation at the CECT V Autumn Conference. Interested participants are encouraged to think about how their work addresses any of the following themes listed below.

Panel I: Bordering Ruptures: The Dynamics of Self-Description

The panel aims to problematise the retrospective meaning-making of an event as rupture: how and by what means is the event of rupture described; what language choices are made to deliver the meaning of rupture (e.g. using pre-event language, event-time language or post-event language, or mixing them to a certain extent)? Questions will also be asked as to the relationship between individual and institutional self-descriptions.

Subtopics:

Organisers of the panel: Ene Kõresaar (CECT cultural communications studies); Katre Pärn (CECT semiotic research)

Panel II: Drawing Borders: (Re-)materialising Ideologies in Landscape and in Practice

The panel aims to explore dialectical relations between culture, social relations and landscape. It discusses how representations of ideological constructions can be displayed in and investigated with the help of material culture. The panel seeks to promote the importance of borders in interpreting new ideas and approaches from the perspectives of landscape geography and archaeology.

Subtopics:


Organisers of the panel: Helen Sooväli-Sepping (CECT landscape studies); Mari Tõrv, Arvi Haak (CECT archaeological research)

Panel III: Imagining and Representing Boundaries of Believable Realities

The panel aims to investigate how we construct and reconstruct realities, with a special emphasis on the differences between ‘insider’ and ‘outsider’ perspectives. The role of basic convictions will be discussed – hence the notion of believable realities. In addition, as basic convictions can change over time, we shall ask what place might transgression have in the construction of reality.

Subtopics:

Organisers of the panel: Aili Aarelaid-Tart, Raili Nugin (CECT cultural studies); Roland Karo (CECT religious studies)

Panel IV: Silence in Cultural Practices: Agency, Power and Ideology on the Border of Language

In this panel we propose to discuss the role of silence in the cultural practices that remain on the border of language. Assumptions about speech, as about silence vary greatly across different social groups due to different language ideologies. We invite presentation of papers on how silence is ‘performed’ in various contexts, such as rituals, child socialisation, hierarchical relations, being in the landscape, intimate daily routines, biographical narrating, etc.

Subtopics:


Organisers of the panel: Laur Vallikivi (CECT ethnological studies); Ergo-Hart Västrik, Pihla Maria Siim (CECT folklore studies)

Panel V: Movement of Humans and Animals: Freedom, Limits, Margins

Organisers of the panel: Riin Magnus, Kadri Tüür (CECT
