About the Conference:
CFP: European Writers in Exile
We have a contract with Lexington Books (an imprint of Rowman and Littlefield) in hand and are issuing a targeted call for, primarily, the following important writers. We have accepted a number of essays already and are seeking now only to round out our volume, as follows.
We seek essays of 5,000 to 6,000 words for an anthology that explores the work of some of the more popular and/or influential European writers in nineteenth-, twentieth- and twenty-first-century exile.
The title of this special issue draws inspiration from Gertrude Stein’s “lively words,” a style of experimental writing that has been influential for many queer and feminist experimental writers. The essays in this special issue will reconsider the “liveliness” of experimental writing in the twentieth and twenty-first century—not only how experimental poetics disrupt codified practices of reading, but also how experimental writers conceive of the relationship between their words and the social world more broadly.
