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

updated: 
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.

Radical Materialisms

Boston College English Graduate Conference

April 6th, 2019

New materialisms and object-oriented ontology offer a radical reorganization—perhaps a democratization—of human/object relations, deemphasizing human agency in favor of a “parliament of things.” This conference asks if such approaches have been too quick to abandon human politics altogether. Can new materialisms be both conceptually and politically radical?

CFP: MLA Teaching Postcolonial Environmental Literature and Media

Cajetan Iheka/Modern Languages Association
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 30, 2018

Essay proposals are invited for a volume in the MLA Options for Teaching series entitled Teaching Postcolonial Environmental Literature and Media, to be edited by Cajetan Iheka. In the past decade, critical readings of texts from formerly colonized societies have increasingly combined postcolonial and ecocritical perspectives. The rising interest in postcolonial ecocriticism is reflected in curricular offerings, which include entire courses or sections of courses devoted to novels, stories, plays, films, and other media focused on environmental issues in postcolonial settings. The proposed volume sets out to establish the scholarship on the teaching of postcolonial ecocriticism.

Thursday, January 31, 2019

Both Jacques Lacan and Michel Foucault took the body as an object of critical inquiry but explored it in divergent ways. This collection of essays, under advance contract with McFarland and Company, will bring together scholars working from Lacanian and Foucaultian perspectives to interrogate the body. Collectively, the papers selected for this volume will aspire to answer, among others, the following questions: how do Lacan and Foucault approach the body, and what new forms of subjectivity emerge when we pay attention to the body? What are we allowed to do to or with our bodies, and what are we allowed to ask others to do to or with our bodies?

AAAI / ACM
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 2, 2018

As AI is becoming more pervasive in our lives, its impact on society is more significant, raising ethical concerns and challenges regarding issues such as value alignment, safety and security, data handling and bias, regulations, accountability, transparency, privacy, and workforce displacement. Only a multidisciplinary effort can find the best ways to address these concerns, including experts from disciplines such as ethics, philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, law, history, and political science. In order to address these issues in a scientific context, AAAI and ACM have joined forces to start a new conference, the AAAI/ACM Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society.
