Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 9:46am
Gary Grieve-Carlson / The Charles Olson Society

If you could choose only one poem by Charles Olson--for inclusion in an anthology, or to teach to undergraduates, or for a graduate seminar, or as your personal favorite, or as his very best, or his most significant--which would it be? The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a roundtable discussion at the May 2011 American Literature Association conference in Boston. Six roundtable participants will be invited to offer ten-minute justifications or explications or celebrations of one poem by Charles Olson. Some might argue that Olson's poems don't stand alone as well as, say, Frost's or Stevens's--that Olson needs to be read in bigger chunks.

"Peace Matters" at CEA

For over twelve years, CEA members concerned with promoting peace through teaching and learning have gathered to share the results of our research and reflection. This year, we are please to ponder how the "wheel of fortune" influences peace. Papers and panels may deal with the fortunes (and misfortunes) of war and peace, the price--and rewards--of peace, and related topics. We invite anyone interested to explore with us the belief that "there is no way to peace; peace is the way."
