Sleep Salon 13: Displaced Sleep

Sleep Salon 13: Displaced Sleep

On Thu., Mar. 23 at 4 p.m. EDT, The Sociability of Sleep project at the Université de Montréal offers “Sleep Salon 13: Displaced Sleep” free and online.

This salon (on Zoom) “considers the provocations of sleep out of place through its demands on a sociable sense of care, and the social, artistic and architectural choreographies that welcome or repel bodies at rest.”

We think that means that the discussion will center around causes and effects of sleep disruption.

The topic may be of interest to nighttime economy advocates.

“Jean Ma (Film and Media Studies, Stanford University) will discuss the work of siting sleep in art practices and the spaces of art exhibition and performance, with a special attention to House/Full of Blackwomen, the work of Amara Tabor-Smith and Ellen Sebastian Chang (guests of our February 2022 Sleep Salon). Cara Chellew (Urban Planning, McGill University) will discuss her research into hostile architecture and design for displacement, in dialogue with the need for rest and sleep of the unhoused.”

Our colleague Will Straw (also of McGill University) moderates this free, two-hour presentation.
