Grids govern our landscapes and cityscapes, our paintings and grocery lists, our maps and our borders, both walled and imaginary. They get us our energy and water, they fuel our online social lives, and structure the ways we perceive and move through space. On the one hand, the grid is a representational mode, one of rendering the world under a Euclidean regime of points, lines, and areas. On the other, it is the material infrastructure of utilities, transit routes and architecture. In an increasingly networked control society, data, numbers, and figures are in a constant feedback loop with material reality.

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott

literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially

Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered. Scott

participated in various and major literary currents during her writing life, including Imagism,

“We were lost piecemeal to the animals, / Like people thrown out to delay the wolves,” Robert Frost wrote famously in his poem “The White-Tailed Hornet” of the modern trend to investigate animality in humans. Robert Frost Society invites new essays on Robert Frost’s life and work which would engage some of the critical frameworks being developed today in animal studies.
