updated: 
Sunday, September 14, 2014 - 9:35pm
Kay Boyle Society

The Kay Boyle Society invites contributions on the innovative ways which Kay Boyle communicates emotion through language in any of the four genres. The focus may include particulars of her narrative or lyric craft, and/or analysis of her publication strategies used to reach broader audiences with her work. We particularly welcome approaches that employ tools of thought from the fields of Affect Studies and Trauma Studies to provide fresh perspectives on works in Boyle's oeuvre that have remained overlooked. Papers might consider Boyle's representations of personal, historical, or cultural trauma in her works, including her writing about war and/or her political activism.

These days the word "craft" gets attached to a lot—from cocktails to crochet, 3D printing to upcycled t-shirts, handmade paper to handmade pickles. And this trend only appears to be growing as craft is closely connected to the DIY movement: a wide-ranging, ever-expanding, and sometimes controversial field of work and play.

Time and place have huge symbolic significance in Eliot's work and that of his contemporaries. Space and time exist as symbolical, religious, philosophical, historical, political and personal 'nodes' in Eliot's writings. This conference wants to explore these 'nodes' in greater depth — where they exist, how they interact with other nodes and themes in Eliot's writing, and how they intersect with the aesthetic and philosophical thinking of Eliot's contemporaries.

[UPDATE] (NeMLA panel; due Sept. 30) "The Moment Made Eternal": At The Intersection of Photography and Poetry

updated: 
Saturday, September 13, 2014 - 12:51pm
NeMLA 2015 - Toronto

Writing about Alfred Stieglitz's photography in 1923, Hart Crane said, "Speed is at the bottom of it all. The hundredth of a second caught so precisely that the motion is continued from the picture indefinitely: the moment made eternal" (qtd. in Sontag's On Photography 65). A thoroughly modern art form, photography reflects the sense of urgency and impulse to record found often in poetry. As discrete units of artistic representation, the photographic image and the poem unveil new ways of looking and interpreting. Both art forms seek to represent that moment, that impression attempting to make the moment eternal, in the image and in the text.

[UPDATE] Digital Diversity 2015: Writing | Feminism | Culture DEADLINE EXTENDED

Saturday, September 13, 2014 - 11:52am
MacEwan University and University of Alberta

How have new technologies transformed literary and cultural histories? How do they enable critical practices of scholars working in and outside of digital humanities? Have decades of digital studies enhanced, altered, or muted the project to recover and represent more diverse histories of writers, thinkers, and artists positioned differently by gender, race, ethnicity, sexualities, social class and/or global location?

What are the imaginative possibilities of poetry outside the written page? What can this type of intersection reveal about the poetic text and about the text in relation? We welcome papers that discuss both ekphrasis and adaptation. Papers might consider poetry in relation to sculpture (including sound sculpture), photography, music, painting, performance, film, and other arts.

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

updated: 
Thursday, September 11, 2014 - 6:20pm
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 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.
