What are the imaginative possibilities of poetry outside the written page? What can this type of intersection reveal about the poetic text and about the text in relation? We welcome papers that discuss both ekphrasis and adaptation. Papers might consider poetry in relation to sculpture (including sound sculpture), photography, music, painting, performance, film, and other arts.
Call for Articles
Diffractions – Graduate Journal for the Study of Culture
POPPING THE QUESTION: THE QUESTION OF POPULAR CULTURE
Deadline for article submissions: December 31, 2014
As a concept, the popular – or popular culture for that matter – has never ceased to be debatable and ambivalent. Although it has come to occupy a particular place under the spotlight over the past decades within the broad study of culture, such apparently privileged position has not deprived it of the manifold ambiguities, complexities or misconceptions that have often involved its general understanding (John Storey, 2012; Angela McRobbie, 1994; Andrew Ross, 1989; John Fiske, 1989).

In the last two decades we have seen a proliferation of what scholars like Wolfgang Hallet, Alison Gibbons, and others have called "multimodal literature." These texts, which include Mark Danielewski's House of Leaves, Steve Tomasula's VAS: An Opera in Flatland, Anne Carson's NOX, Jonathan Safran Foer's Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, and Doug Dorst and JJ Abrams' S, among others, engage the verbal dimensions of narrative communication while incorporating modalities that have been conventionally omitted in genres like the literary novel and even poetry.

What strategies do contemporary arts (such as literature, film, visual, media and performative arts) employ to narrate experiences that resist telling and imagining, such as experiences of traumatic histories and limit events? What ethical issues do their processes of storytelling involve?
Alex Davis (University College Cork)
Peter Howarth (Queen Mary)
This panel seeks papers on the relation between trauma and representation in photography and related visual media. How do images of atrocities both provoke and disarm our voyeuristic gaze? How does bearing witness differ within visual, oral, and literary fields? This panel will explore our engagement with the spectacle of atrocities via the work of artists such as Alfredo Jaar and Richard Mosse. Preference will be given to papers that examine both photography and literature.
