Mediated Narratives is a 75-minute session featuring performative interventions and critical discussions around innovative approaches to fiction, narrativity, and performance across media from the 1970s to today.

The session is organized around key performances by Constance DeJong, who will present an arrangement of selected works dating back to the late 1970s. These excerpted selections form the basis for several thematic and methodological focuses to be explored in the panel: from experimental self-publishing (Modern Love, 1977), to the use of new media technology (Relatives, 1989 and Fantastic Prayers, 1995), to radiophony (from her recent radio series), digital publishing (Nightwriters, 2018) and recombinatory presentations of existing narratives.

DeJong is joined by poet and new media artist Catherine Tyc and art historian and curator Rachel Valinsky, who will respond to and speak alongside each performance with short essays contextualization DeJong’s performances through reflections on key questions around (auto)fiction, performance, and new media from the 1970s to today.
