"The Haunting Cliffs: Some notes on silence"

Jan 24, 2018 09:15 am to 10:45 am
Organiser: Daniel Münster

Speaker: Dr. Hugo Reinert (University of Oslo, Anthropology)

    
The Haunting Cliffs: Some notes on silence
The presentation focuses on the emerging silences of a coastal landscape in the Lofoten archipelago, in northern Norway. For years, seabird populations along the Norwegian coast have been collapsing: as they do, the cliffs where they used to nest fall silent. What happens to a landscape in this growing silence—as species vanish and their songs die out? The silences this creates are dense, layered, crossing scales and time. How can they be captured? How can they be heard?
