According to Marx, man's aesthetic sense is socially acquired, rather than innate. As cultural producers, artists must labor in the system for the benefit of the market as well as be committed to the working-class cause. In keeping with the theme of SAMLA87, this panel will seek to explore the ways that social constructs can influence all mediums of art. Papers dealing with any aspect of Marxism will be considered as well. Please send abstracts, A/V requirements, and a brief bio to Emma Baughman, Georgia State University, at email@example.com Deadline is 10 June 2015.

"In a world where language and naming are power, silence is oppression, is violence."
― Adrienne Rich, On Lies, Secrets, and Silence: Selected Prose, 1966-1978
"When we (as readers) fill in the gaps that the writer has peppered throughout the book, we form a meaningful bond with the book. We are not just pulling information from it; we're participating in a reciprocal relationship, creating and deriving meaning in an extravaganza of interpretation."
—Wolfgang Iser, Prospecting: From Reader Response to Literary Anthropology
Hearing Voices (panel, Modernist Studies Association annual conference, Boston, November 2015)
How do we hear poetic voice? How do poems reflect and respond to language as spoken and heard? Moving beyond habitual equations of voice with sincerity, what perspectives might we bring to bear on the phenomenon of hearing and the idea of voice in the poetry of modernism and after?
2nd International Conference of the University of Banja Luka (BiH) in cooperation with Institute of English Studies, University of London (UK)
