SYLLABUS SUMMER SCHOOL RETREAT DAY 2:
Syllabus Dinner - Hildegard's Shimmering

Friday 22 July, 18.00 - 22.00
by Jesse Jones and Fiona Hallinan

Fiona Hallinan is an artist and researcher based between Belgium and Ireland. She is interested in themes of hospitality, traces, thresholds, care and critical pedagogy and often works with food as part of her practice, cooking and organising meals. Through a doctoral project and artistic practice, she explores the coming-into-being of Ultimology, the study of that which is dead or dying (death here encompassing both the end of life and the passing into irrelevance, redundancy or extinction of material and immaterial entities), as a tool for transformative discourse.

Together with Jesse, Sara and participants of the Syllabus programme, Fiona will guide preparation of a meal of plants, leaves and herbs that requires participation, sharing and assembly. While preparing this meal together she will share some of her recent research on endings, looking at how rituals of mourning and grief might inform ways we negotiate what anthropologist Deborah Bird Rose describes as the 'double deaths' wrought by environmental destruction. Jesse will share some of her recent research influenced by Hildgard of Bingen - Mystic, composer, writer and Abbess - in the form of a prepared libation to accompany the meal.

This event is part of the Syllabus Summer School Retreat
