Deadline for proposals: 1 June, 2024

In his acceptance speech for the Nobel prize in literature Jon Fosse only half jokingly referred to himself as the master of silence: how else, he asked, can we bring the unsayable out in language than through “long pause, short pause, or, simply, pause.”

Key questions for this year’s Ereignis conference are:

* What kind of speech, or speech event, enables the silent to come forward?
* How can that which cannot be said be alluded or referred to in speech?
* How is the relation between speech and silence challenged by the an increasing awareness of non-human speech?
* What are the socio-political ramifications of these relations?
