A collection of essays and scholarly articles analyzing the work of late 20th century "existential" and outlaw poets living or dead will be published in 2017. Please choose from the list of named poets below which includes those largely ignored by academics because of the obscure nature of their less categorizable creative work. We seek articles, literary criticism, reviews, private collection catalogs, student essays, and some anecdotes or narratives describing encounters with the poet/artist or writing/art that are not strictly pejorative. Photos and video are welcome. The anthology will collect secondary works about the listed artists.
The Center for Body, Mind, and Culture invites proposals for papers to be presented at a 2-day conference, January 28–29, 2016, at Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton.
This roundtable proposal seeks to expand the conversation on sound studies in literature. Instead of focusing on one time period or geographical area, this roundtable brings scholars of all different types of literature together to discuss sound in literature.
NeMLA 2016 (March 17-20)
Reexamining Russian, French, English, and American literatures' footprint on the work of Latin American writers, translation reveals itself not just as a bridge between continents, but the very material from which Latin American literature and culture construct themselves.
Please consider proposing a paper to the ACLA 2016 seminar on poetry and forgiveness.

Seminar: Poetry and Forgiveness
Meeting of the American Comparative Literature Association
Harvard U., Cambridge, MA, 17-20 March, 2016
Abstracts due 23 September, midnight PST; submit through the ACLA online portal: http://www.acla.org/node/add/paper.
In response to an echoing call for a renewed attention to form, this ACLA seminar will examine a particularly rich formal classification: the serial. Conceiving of serial form broadly to encompass a variety of sequential and collected narratives, from installments and episodes to versions, revisions, witnesses, releases, copies, variations, collections, and cycles, we will ask how narratives in parts challenge and invigorate our critical approaches to narrative form. While criticism of serial form tends to center on Charles Dickens and look forward to twentieth-century radio and television, the formal conventions of seriality – the sequence and collection of narratives – extends far beyond this fictional field.
