American Literature Association Conference, May 24-27, 2018 (San Francisco): “Stevens’ Americana”

updated: 
Wednesday, November 15, 2017 - 9:05am
Wallace Stevens Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, December 1, 2017

Robert Frost intended to insult Stevens’ poetry when he called it mere “bric-a-brac,” verses loaded with pretty ornaments of ultimately little concrete value beyond themselves. In the context of American studies, however, “bric-a-brac” (or “Americana,” in our national tradition) often appreciates in critical value over time. This panel proposes to look at items, objects, or elements of Americana in Stevens’ poetry, essays, letters, and/or life. It welcomes presentations that consider the way Stevens uses or abuses American artifacts or lore in his work, as well as those that establish links between Stevens and other writings, cultural products, or ephemera idealized as unique to (or representative of) the American experience.
