Listening to the Land: Sound Ecologies in O'odham Words, Stories, and Songs
Limited Capacity seats available

“Listening to the Land: Sound Ecologies in O'odham Words, Stories, and Songs” 

O'odham have been keen observers of life in the desert from time immemorial. Naturally, these observations engage all of the senses, accumulating knowledge about particular species and also relationships between them. This roundtable explores some aspects of O’odham Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) by considering some of the ways in which sound ecology is encoded in the onomatopoetic aspects of the O'odham language, stories about listening to voices in the land, and bird songs that map routes of travel and record history.   

Ofelia Zepeda is a MacArthur Fellow and a Professor of Linguistics at the University of Arizona. She is well-known scholarly for her work on the O'odham language in linguistics, her advocacy for indigenous language revitalization and maintenance, and her poetry in both English and O'odham.

David Martinez is Associate Professor of American Indian Studies at Arizona State University. He specializes in American Indian intellectual history, art and aesthetics, and folklore studies.

Simon Lopez is a cowboy, curer, and traditional singer.

Seth Schermerhorn is Assistant Professor of Religious Studies at Hamilton College. He specializes in the interdisciplinary study of the indigenous religious traditions of the southwest, particularly O'odham pilgrimages to Magdalena, Sonora.

Arts and climate change - Ricardo Dal Farra
Limited Capacity seats available

Special presentation on arts, science and global warming. Ricardo Dal Farra (Montreal, Canada) - Founder of the Balance-Unbaanlce conference.  http://www.balance-unbalance2015.org

Arts & Climate Change

We are living in a world reaching a critical point where the equilibrium between a healthy environment, the energy our society needs to maintain or improve this lifestyle and the interconnected economies could pass more quickly than expected from the current complex balance to a complete new reality where unbalance would be the rule and human beings would need to be as creative as never before to survive. Environmental problems, economic uncertainty and political complexity have been around for a long time. What was different before was the speed and depth of transformations compared with today’s sudden changes. The frequent occurrence and severity that certain weather and climate-related events are having around us is increasing, and the ability of human beings on modifying adjacent surroundings as well as distant places have turn into a power capable of altering the planet. Have electronic art a role in all this? Have electronic artists a responsibility in this context? Aiming to use electronic art as a catalyst with the intent of engendering a deeper awareness and creating lasting intellectual working partnerships in solving our global environmental crisis, three robust initiatives were launched: Balance-Unbalance, ‘art! ⋈climate’ (with the Red Cross Climate Centre) and EChO.
