DEADLINE APPROACHING—CFP for Panel at SAMLA—The Avant-Garde and Modern Visual Culture: At the Crossroads of High and Low Art

updated: 
Monday, April 24, 2017 - 2:09pm
South Atlantic Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, June 1, 2017

This panel examines the imbrication of the avant-garde with mass-produced art in order to discern the relationships between the proliferation of images and capitalism in the advent of modern visual culture. Imitating the shock value of advertising, the avant-gardists appeal to the eye of the viewer to gain visibility in the domains of art and draw the consumer’s attention to its product, thereby revealing the profit-oriented motives of marketplace exchanges. Immaterialities such as images are thus transformed into commodities that blend high and low aesthetic genres that participate in the consumer society.

10 DAYS TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT—CFP for ALA panel—Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

updated: 
Monday, April 24, 2017 - 2:09pm
American Literature Association—"Regionalism and Place in American Literature"
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, May 1, 2017

This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness. One of their avenues of research was the exploration of the distinctive features of the American soil as a means of contributing novel aspects to modern aesthetics. The genuine character of the environment is closely linked to the strong attachment to rural or urban spaces and the value they acquire for the observer.

 This panel proposes that early modern transformations in rape law placed pressure on issues concerning female self-possession, sexual knowledge, pleasure, and consent and that these tensions were critiqued and, at times, exploited by playwrights and authors of the period. In what ways do sixteenth and seventeenth century poetry, drama, and literature explore the injustices and ambiguities arising from the elision of resistance, coercion, and consent in sexual encounters?

Weighing the Anthropocene

ASLE at the 2017 Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts Conference 9-12 November 2017
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, May 12, 2017

This ASLE (Association for the Study of Literature and Environment) panel at the 31st annual meeting of the Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts in Tempe, AZ 9-12 November, invites 15-minute papers that address the conference theme in terms of the Anthropocene. What might be lost and/or what might be gained with this new measure of geological time, and what it might mean to weigh and measure -- to demarcate meaning or value -- in an age at once characterized by a new awareness of vertiginous scale and complex interconnection, and by the seeming collapse of agency itself into a singularity, an idea of "Man"?

Kanada Koncrete: verbi-voco-visual poetries in the age of multimedia

updated: 
Friday, April 14, 2017 - 12:12pm
The Canadian Literature Symposium
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 25, 2017

The multi-media possibilities of the web, the optic flexibility of digital books, the ability to record image and sound cheaply and share that material quickly and widely over a variety of platforms, have drastically undermined poets' dependence on the page and print-based forms of distribution. Something has changed in the manner we encounter poetry. To what extent, though, have these technological changes transformed the forms and functions of poetry as such? Have they finally produced the necessary conditions for truly 'verbi-voco-visual' work, a one-time dream of the modernist avant-garde?  Have multimedia forms of poetry displaced more traditional forms and formats?
