Keynote Speaker: Tavia Nyong'o, NYU Performance Studies.

Everyone's a little bit obsessive; academics are usually more than a
little. But what consitutes our obsessions and what work do they do? What
is the relation between obsession and knowledge production; and what
about less legitimate obsessions, the things, places, people and cultural
forms about which we feel excessive love or hate?

POETRY AND EDUCATION

Mater Dei Institute of Education (Dublin City University)

22nd-23rd February 2008

Poetry has always played an important role in education: the didactic and
mnemonic potential of verse has long been recognised; certain poems have
been regarded as essential to a good education. Recently, however, the
relationship between poetry and education has changed. The rise of creative
writing programmes in universities, increasing numbers of poets pursuing
academic careers, and a growth in writing workshop culture has altered the
way we see poetry in education and education in poetry.
