The 45th Annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900
Panel: Comp/Rhet Theory and Pedagogy approaches to 20th and 21st Century American Poetry Studies
The present moment of American history is a difficult one to write. It consists of a complicated range of catastrophic events in the making, as the convergence of institutional racism, uneven development, and ecological degradation set the conditions for pervasive sense of crisis. The American present therefore demands political engagement from a number of angles—racial, economic, ecological, to name a few—at once. And the contingencies of the present as a temporal category, more generally, recall the boundary-crossing potential of event-making on the move—history “in solution,” as Raymond Williams put it.
We are interested in the best unpublished work in a variety of genres. Please submit no more than five pieces total for consideration. This must be work that has not been published in print or online, including blog posts. Submit your work electronically, following the specific guidelines for the genre.

About the Conference:
Brief abstracts are invited for a volume of essays about the uses of poetry in pedagogical contexts other than college English and Creative Writing courses. How (if at all) do instructors in other humanities, social science, and science disciplines engage with poetry? How do those working outside of the academy use poetry to promote literacy, cognition, or affective competence? We are negotiating with a major academic publisher and there will be a peer review process. At this point, we are just seeking 500 word abstracts for original scholarly essays. Please email 500-word abstracts, with cv, to Sandra Lee Kleppe, Hamar University College, firstname.lastname@example.org, by September 15, 2016.

One of the surest of tests is the way in which a poet borrows. Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.
— T. S. Eliot, The Sacred Wood (1920)
The International Lawrence Durrell Society invites proposals for papers exploring the broad theme of “Indebtedness & Influence” in literature and culture since 1900.
