Maria Fusco presents Dr Scott Hames

21 Woodlands Terrace, Glasgow, G3 6DF

19 October 2017

Thursday 19 October, 6pm

The third event for Maria Fusco's project 'Dialecty’ was a talk by Dr Scott Hames, Lecturer in Scottish Literature at Stirling University. Hames is interested in ‘vernacular’ writing and cultural politics, especially in modern Scotland. His talk explored aesthetic possibilities for dialect which run counter to the romantic and realist paradigms that usually govern our perception of non-standard language.

'Dialecty' is a new project conceived by writer Maria Fusco considering the critical uses of vernacular forms of speaking and writing. The project explores the occurrences and potential uses of dialect words, syntax and language within the field of contemporary art and question traditional orthodoxies of creative and critical writing within contemporary art.
