Forty-one years after the publication of Julia Kristeva's landmark theoretical intervention in modernist studies, _La révolution du langage poétique_, this panel proposes, following the conference theme, "Modernism and Revolution," to reconsider the relationship of poetry to revolution, whether considered in terms of what happens within the language, the text's revolutionary effects, or its commitment to a wider revolutionary agenda. Does poetry promise what Arthur Rimbaud heralds as "étonnantes révolutions de l'amour" ["amazing revolutions of love"], or should it, acquiescing to W.H. Auden's dictum, concede that indeed it "makes nothing happen" and humble itself, surviving only as "[a] way of happening, a mouth"?
Special Volume of Black Mountain College Studies Journal
Blake Hobby, Executive Editor; Chris Wilson Simpkins, Guest Editor
Slated for publication in late fall of 2015, this volume of BMCS will contain scholarly essays, poems, artworks, and other forms of media that explore Hilda Morley's relationship to Black Mountain College. As much of Morley's work was published late in life or posthumously, contributors need not limit themselves to the years she was at BMC and should feel free to draw upon her entire life and oeuvre.
This panel seeks papers about the diverse manifestations of democracy and patriotism in American fiction. Open to a wide range of areas, periods, and approaches within this broad topic. Submissions might address (but certainly are not limited to):

CFP Deadline: March 1st, 2015.
Conference Date: April 24, 2015.
McGill University, Montréal
Silence itself—the things one declines to say, or is forbidden to name, the discretion that is required between different speakers—is less the absolute limit of discourse, the other side from which it is separated by a strict boundary, than an element that functions alongside the things said, with them and in relation to them within over-all strategies. [...]There is not one but many silences, and they are an integral part of the strategies that underlie and permeate discourses. (Michel Foucault, The History of Sexuality Vol. 1: An Introduction )
August 21-23, 2015
Halifax, Nova Scotia
This panel considers the numerous ways in which the work of William Carlos Williams engages with borders and performs or problematizes crossings. Ranging from Williams's personal or literary genealogy to negotiations of borders in terms of poetics or place, we seek papers problematizing Williams's handling of tradition, Europe, the New World, and history. Other topics/questions this panel may consider are: how does Williams's work handle the concepts of space and time? How does his work make use of or skew our perception of these? Where does his work position itself in relation to those parameters?
