Renascence, a peer-reviewed critical and scholarly journal, is published by Marquette University as an expression of its Jesuit mission of the search for truth and the exaltation of human dignity. The journal's essays explore how literature is informed by and contributes to our understanding of fundamental questions concerning moral philosophy, theology, and spirituality. Though Renascence is an English language journal and has an emphasis on literature in English, studies on works and authors from a diversity of times, countries, and cultures are welcome. Essays should make a well-defined, original scholarly argument, run 4,000-7,000 words, and document sources using MLA style.
This panel welcomes papers about the poetic and musical lyricism exhibited in the work of SAMLA 87's Co-Creative Plenary, Wyn Cooper. Papers should address Cooper's work in the fields of poetry and/or music, and will be read as part of a roundtable discussion which will undertake an exploration of the intersections of music and poetry. By June 15th, please submit a 200-word abstract, brief bio, and A/V requirements to Andrea Rogers, Georgia State University, at email@example.com.
SAMLA 87 takes place November 13th-15th at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel & Convention Center in Durham, North Carolina. The conference's special focus is "In Concert: Literature and the Other Arts."
