[UPDATE] New deadline, Oct. 10. A Wind Freshened and an Anchor Weighed: Reflections on the Career of Seamus Heaney; 4/30-5/3, 15

When Seamus Heaney died last August, he seemed to be a kind of figure the literary world had not known for some time: a poet who had academic cachet and a common touch, and perhaps more to the point, a general readership; a poet absorbed by his own art yet seemingly equally at home as a critic; a fiercely exacting writer who was also something of a smiling, public man on two continents; a thoroughly international presence who never let go of the local. For this session, I'd hope to assemble a range of presentations that would explore from various perspectives the nature of Heaney's particular (to stop short of saying 'unique') career and achievement, and the inferences we might draw from it about poetry and its audience(s).

Seeing Animals, ACLA, Seattle 3/26-3/29 2015

Jacques Derrida's influential The Animal That Therefore I Am begins with a scene of seeing, as he stands exposed before "a cat that looks at [him] without moving, just to see." For Donna Haraway, in When Species Meet, it's key that Derrida "understood that actual animals look back at actual human beings." This seminar strays onto this scene also in order to consider this face-to-face encounter, and to consider, in particular, the representation of these human and non-human seeing animals and what they see. Or, what they perceive, because the sight of these faces is surely asymmetrical and must touch also on scent, sound, and taste.

Figural Evasions: The Poetics of Defense (ACLA, March 26-29 Seattle)

Poetics and defense have long been bedfellows, from Plato's infamous call for poets to be exiled from the polis to the cottage industry around the "defense of poetry" (Sidney, Du Bellay, Shelley, and so on). Our seminar aims to engage the problem of poetics and defense in a different way from this distinguished lineage, though. How might poetry itself be a method of evasion and defense? And what tropic entanglements do writers wishing to evade poetry and poetics find themselves in, perhaps in spite of themselves? What does poetry have to teach us about the art of avoidance both in the successful execution of evasion and in its botch? And how do poems figure avoidance itself, as both a goal and an object of critique?

From the major urban parks of the 19th Century—like Central Park in New York and City Park in New Orleans—to today's plethora of urban gardens, American city planners and residents have attempted to introduce "nature" into the "artificial" space of major cities. But what about those living creatures often ignored in such idyllic visions: rats, bugs, pigeons, and others "pests"? What about the weeds growing from cracks in the sidewalk and in vacant lots? Why privilege the former kind of nature and not the latter? Furthermore, how has this distinction between two kinds of nature been used to justify the pollution of animal, plant, and human communities in urban settings with dangerous chemicals?
