Join Stephen Morey at Phee Broadway, where he will talk about his recent research in the context of Woven Dialogue.

This event is one of four LAI Field Talks at the Castlemaine State Festival. In these talks, leading Latrobe academics discuss their field of research in parallel to contemporary visual arts in the festival.

Stephen Morey's research is undertaken in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh States, India, as well in the neighbouring areas of Burma. His research covers three language groups: Tai, Singpho and Tangsa. Stephen has transcribed and analysed a large corpus of text in these various languages. In many cases the languages that Stephen is researching had never been recorded before he commenced his work. A huge number of recordings are now being archived to help preserve the linguistic diversity of the India-Burma border. A particular area of Stephen's interest is traditional song, particularly ritual songs. In 2016-19 he is leading a project to examine the Tangsa Wihu Song.

Woven Dialogue brings together aboriginal artists from the Northern Territory and Victoria who explore the synergies in their practice and knowledge through the interweaving of language. The early inspiration for this ongoing project arose out of the work created in Castlemaine as part of the Regional Centre for Culture in 2017-18.
