Queer Poetics at PAMLA 2015 - 11/6-8

updated: 
Monday, May 4, 2015 - 6:37pm
Ryan Sullivan, UC Riverside

This panel seeks papers that consider what it might mean to think about poetics in relation to queer studies—specifically scholars who are working with queer studies in conjunction with historical poetics, the history of poetic criticism, and lyric theory. Rather than papers that read poetry by queer writers or read queerness in poetry, this panel is looking for work that thinks more about what it means to write poetry as a queer person, about how that poetry circulates in the world, and how that poetry is read and received. Keeping with the conference theme, papers that think about poetics in relation to queer questions of time, temporality and history are particularly encouraged.
