While digital methodologies for the production, publication, and circulation of research are increasingly becoming mainstream in English studies, especially among digital rhetoric and humanities practitioners (Grabill & Pigg, 2012; McKee & Devoss, 2007; Nickoson & Sheridan, 2012), such methods are not always rendered transparent in ways that allow us to "show our work." Efforts to bring more visibility to discussions of research, such as the creation of the Research Exchange Index (REx), demonstrate the opportunities made available by open-access venues that can focus attention on writing research.

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

Northeast Modern Language Association 47th Annual NeMLA Convention
contact email: 

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.
