Medical Humanism / American Literature

CFP for American Literature Association (ALA) 30th Annual Conference

May 23-26, 2019, Boston, MA

Given the ongoing healthcare crisis in America—soaring costs, physician shortages, and lack of insurance coverage—and the rising interest in the field of health humanities, I seek projects that illuminate American literature’s contribution to medical humanism. More specifically, I am interested in papers that address how American literature can help us revision our view of the body, health, illness, disease, medical education, and/or the healthcare system.

Re-Viewing Projective Verse: Form and Collaboration in Avant-Garde Poetics

Monday, October 22, 2018 - 4:48pm
The Charles Olson Society
deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, January 15, 2019

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Boston, May 23-26, 2019. We are interested in abstracts about any aspect of avant-garde poetics in mid-Century American verse, but in particular those that explore the collaborative and/or formal mechanics of projective verse as it developed in the diverse poetry communities of the 1950s and 1960s. While Olson’s essay “Projective Verse” has received ample treatment in studies concerning his own poetry and his direct contemporaries (Duncan/Creeley), other poets also built on projective verse in their own ways, fashioning distinctive styles that are related to projective verse but that transform it as well.
