Borders and Crossings: Time and Space in William Carlos Williams. MLA 2016, 7-10 January, Austin (Deadline 8 March, 2015)

updated: 
Friday, February 6, 2015 - 1:02pm
William Carlos Williams Society

This panel considers the numerous ways in which the work of William Carlos Williams engages with borders and performs or problematizes crossings. Ranging from Williams's personal or literary genealogy to negotiations of borders in terms of poetics or place, we seek papers problematizing Williams's handling of tradition, Europe, the New World, and history. Other topics/questions this panel may consider are: how does Williams's work handle the concepts of space and time? How does his work make use of or skew our perception of these? Where does his work position itself in relation to those parameters?
