Description

Plé oscailte/Roundtable Discussion

Rannpháirtithe/Participants: Sailí Ní Dhroighneáin, Síle Denvir, Iarla Ó Lionáird agus eile.

Tá sainmhíniú an tsean-nóis pléite go criticiúil ag scoláirí le fada anois, ó thaobh aeistéitice, stíle, agus seanrá de. Ach tá cleachtais comhaimseartha ag tabhairt dúshláin do thuairimí na coitiantachta, agus tá cruthanna nua, i gcomhthéacsanna nua, curtha ar an traidisiún.

Céard í amhránaíocht na Gaeilge sa lá atá inniu ann? Cé hiad na comhthéacsanna (idir sean agus nua) ina fhaightear í? An bhfuil brí nua, nó brí ar bith, má bhí riamh, leis an téarma “sean-nós”? Céard iad na saghsanna nua comhoibriú, agus na modhanna nua cruthaitheachta, atá ag teacht chun cinn?

Received definitions of sean nós singing and its stylistic, aesthetic and generic parameters have been critically evaluated by scholars for several decades now. These definitions have also been challenged in practice, as new forms and contexts for sean nós singing emerge amongst its contemporary practitioners. The interplay between theoretical research on sean nós singing and the reality of contemporary performance practices is a fruitful site of exploration, which will form the basis for this roundtable discussion. How does contemporary sean nós singing relate to its social, linguistic and historical contexts? How is its continuity with tradition negotiated? What new concepts of creativity and collaboration are currently emerging?

This event is part of the Annual Conference of the Anthropological Association of Ireland (AAI), and will be followed by a wine reception.
