20th Annual Tufts University English Graduate Organization Conference
Friday, October 24, 2008

MARKING THE EVENT

Keynote Address: Professor Michael Warner, Yale University

ABOUT THE CONFERENCE:
The Event changes everything. And yet we have difficulty defining the
event. How do we theorize the transitory? As community members, we mark
events with ceremonies of celebration and mourning. As scholars, we
strive to leave our critical mark. Ultimately we must ask ourselves, do
we mark the event or does the event mark us?

Special Issue: Ecology and Ideology

The contemporary moment abounds with speculation concerning our ecological
future. Specialists in a variety of fields forecast immanent catastrophe,
stemming from a combination of climate change, fossil-fuel depletion, and
consumer waste. The recent bestowal of the Nobel Peace Prize on a group of
scientists studying climate change indicates the degree to which "peace"
has come to signify ecological balance; even the declaration by the Vatican
of a new set of "7 Deadly Sins for the modern age" includes pollution in an
attempt to grapple with the potential of individuals to inflict ecological
damage on a global scale.

Essays are sought for a collection of critical essays on Donald Allen’s 1960 seminal anthology,
“The New American Poetry,” an anthology that Marjorie Perloff called in a 1995 essay, “[…] the
fountainhead of radical American poetics.” Such an edition should be very well received and will
add greatly to poetry scholarship today due to the monumental influence the original collection
has had. Allen’s anthology was the first to widely distribute the poetry and theoretical positions
of poets such as Charles Olson and Allen Ginsberg and the Beats, and it was the first to
categorize these poets by the schools (Black Mountain, New York, San Francisco, etc.) by which
