[UPDATE] New Contexts for American Poetry in the 1950's and 1960's

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 26-28, 2015. We are interested in abstracts pertaining to poetry in the fifties and sixties, especially those that draw attention to uncommon readings. Though Donald Allen's influential anthology The New American Poetry divided American poetry into distinct schools (Black Mountain, San Francisco, Beat, New York) and contributed to its division into distinct styles (Experimental, Academic, and Confessional), Allen's model creates too many internal and external contradictions.

The Poetics/Politics of Post-Postmodernism

In the epilogue to the second edition of The Politics of Postmodernism, Linda Hutcheon heralds the closure of the very period she helped to define: "Let's just say it," she admits, "it's over" (2002: 165-166). This view has in recent years been echoed by an increasing number of cultural critics, who cite the failure of the postmodern aesthetic—developed in the 1970s and characterized by fragmentation, self-reflexivity, and irony—to embody the very real ethical and political concerns of twenty-first century citizens (cf. Eshelman, 2008; Kirby, 2009; Toth, 2010; Vermeulen and van den Akker, 2010; Abrahamson, 2013).

Love and Loss in Modernist Poetry (NEMLA, Toronto, April 30-May 3, 2015)

While poetry itself has played a historically long and significant role in the discourse of love, the period of modernity seems to be largely associated with its opposites. As the standard narrative goes, citizens the world over felt overwhelmed and frightened by the sundry and rapid changes – literal, conceptual, moral, and beyond – brought about by industrialization, scientific developments, WWI, etc. And the poetry that characterizes this time period represents and reflects on some of the more devastating changes. But what happens to poetic love in the early 20th century? What specifically happens when love, loss, and poetry come together during such a fraught time?
