The rise of the modern museum was (and remains) a global event that resonates across literary cultures. Germain Bazin termed the nineteenth century the "Museum Age" for the myriad ways the new phenomenon of the public museum redefined the social status of art. This session investigates how this development was received by nineteenth- and twentieth-century Anglophone authors writing during and immediately following the rise of the modern museum.

Entangled Poetics: Mediating Ecology (NeMLA 2016) Sept 30 Deadline

updated: 
Sunday, June 28, 2015 - 4:21pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 47th Annual NeMLA Convention March 17-20, 2016 Hartford, CT

This panel means to investigate the entangled relationship of modern and contemporary American poetry and ecology. Referencing Rey Chow's notion of entanglement, i.e., a "condition of overlapping recurrences," the panel seeks to analyze the points of recursive coincidence that ensue between cultural manifestations, poetic production, and environmental thinking. Entanglement points to associations of spatial proximity, of overlaying, but also of resistance and tension between phenomena. It thus brings occurrences together through affinity and disjunction alike and offers a powerful paradigm to think about mediation in relation to complex networks and loop interactions.
