About In Search of New Makars

The general aim of the project is to engage with stand-up poets in order to exchange ideas inspired by the History of Distributed Cognition Project and to gain better visibility among members of the general public. Without further ado, we'd like to invite you to a flyting contest—with the final in Edinburgh—for the best creative adaptations of 'The Flyting of Dunbar and Kennedy'. In addition to bringing back to life the medieval flyting genre, a poetic exchange of insults between two (or more) poets, we'd like to encourage you to think about the ways in which flyting performances and texts might lend themselves to interpretations that fit within—and perhaps enrich—the distributed cognition frameworks.

Interested? Please check out more details on how you can participate or learn more.
