Accepted Paper:

I shall not be moved  
Charlotte Hoskins (University of Oxford)

Paper long abstract:

This 'letter' takes its form from the sounds of two Christian hymns that are sung with tender frequency by an Anglican parish from a Makushi village in the Upper Takutu - Upper Essequibo region of Guyana. These voices, render the hymnal texts 'I shall not be moved' and 'Jesus loves me this I know' to be audible in particular ways. An attempt to further dislocate the potential fixed meaning of these hymns, is suggested by the images they are paired with here. Working in the material of sound, text, and image I consider carefully the relationship between sound as it is heard, its lettered form as text, and the work of the image.
