AWP 2013 - Boston, March 6-9 - Poetry and the Academy Today CFP

Rebecca van Laer

Seeking presentation proposals for the annual AWP conference in Boston, Massachusetts, March 6-9, 2013.

As first-book contests become increasingly influential in shaping contemporary poetry, this panel explores how these contests and other national poetry awards-- particularly the Yale Series of Younger Poets and the Poet Laureateship-- promote established poetic forms that occlude artists working in more experimental modes. Papers will revolve around the relationship between poets and the academy broadly conceived, in particular how the latter's promotion of an established aesthetic overlooks working-class and non-lyric poets, and how we might imagine a publishing industry more amenable to non-traditional forms.

Religious travel is found in many of the world's greatest literary works, from the pilgrims going to Canterbury to Tripitaka collecting the sacred scrolls in India to Las Casas traveling around the New World to Dante ascending from Hell into Paradise--just to name a few well-known examples.

Presentations on any topic related to literary depictions of religious travel--anything from literal depictions of pilgrimage or mission to metaphorical depictions of spiritual journeying or ascension--are welcome. Source material may come from any religious tradition and geographic region, and genres may include both textual and performed materials (e.g., plays, songs, movies).
