This seminar seeks papers that interrogate, trouble, and (re)articulate the interrelations of performance, poetics, and community within a critical hemispheric lens. Papers that examine how publics enacted through poetry and/in performance can potentially reaffirm, realign, and reorganize themselves out from the obfuscations of contemporary living are particularly welcome.

CFP: NEMLA 2016 Hartford What does Digital Humanities Enable Today?

updated: 
Monday, August 31, 2015 - 2:44pm
elif sendur/ Binghamton University

In their 1999 essay "Deformance and Interpretation," Lisa Samuels and Jerome McGann propose deformative criticism against a rigid, theoretical, informative mode of reading in humanities. Deformance is an action, an imaginative, creative poiesis that does not necessarily aim to set a meaning of a text but reimagines it as a performance. Usually perceived in opposition to the more analytical camp of Digital Humanities, deformative criticism or deformance seems to be one of the very real and material alleys that Digital Humanities has offered to the structured, institutional, and perhaps all too ossified forms of production and exposition of knowledge.

[UPDATE DEADLINE EXTENDED] Expanding the Field: Rethinking Projective Verse and Mid-Century American Poetry

updated: 
Monday, August 31, 2015 - 2:33pm
The Charles Olson Society

The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville, February 18-20, 2016. We are interested in abstracts pertaining to any aspect of mid-Century American poetics, but in particular those that build on and problematize the mechanics of projective verse. While "Projective Verse" has received ample treatment in studies concerning major poets like Charles Olson and Robert Duncan, other poets built on projective verse in their own ways, fashioning distinctive styles that, while tangentially related to projective verse, also created new poetic forms.

Presumed Autonomy: Literature and Art in Theory and Practice 10–13 May 2016

updated: 
Monday, August 31, 2015 - 9:20am
Department of English, Stockholm University, Sweden

Ever since the emergence of the modern marketplace for cultural goods, literary texts and art works have, on occasion, defied the expectations of its readers and audience, affronted their moral ethos, or flaunted a disregard for their sensibilities and norms. The potential power of art to disrupt the perceptions of its audience was foregrounded in the critical discourse of the modernists and the historical avant-garde and this possibility continues to animate critical debates, particularly those organized around some understanding of autonomy. With the all but complete commodification of every artistic and literary practice, it is more urgent than ever to pose the question whether we can still presume autonomy.
