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

Wednesday, September 10, 2014 - 9:47am
Northeastern Modern Language Association

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?

Marcher Metaphysicals Conference

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 12:46pm
Joseph Sterrett (Aarhus University, Denmark) / Helen Wilcox (Bangor University, Wales)

The Marcher Metaphysicals Conference, 29 October-1 November 2015
Gregynog Hall, Tregynon, Mid-Wales

The Welsh Marches, Marchia Walliae, or Y Mers in Welsh, constitute an extensive area around the boundary between England and Wales. This border country, in its breadth and somewhat hazy demarcation, defies precise definition, and invites fluidity of ideas and perception. The Marches are both a place in their own right, and an approach to somewhere else; they form a site of great natural beauty but also of historic political contention. Norman conquerors used these lands to subdue the native Welsh, as well as to create a jurisdiction separate from the English crown.

Paradigms of Criticism

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 10:36am
Northeast MLA

The roundtable will consider how the spaces available for criticism, both inside and outside the academy, as well as the stylistic and disciplinary conventions of criticism, determine, in part, the kinds of critical work that gets (or doesn't get) produced and how that critical work advances (or doesn't) conversation and engagement with literature, art, science, and thought. Proposals representing a variety of disciplinary perspectives, historical eras, and methodological approaches are all welcome.

Creative Criticism

Tuesday, September 9, 2014 - 10:33am
Northeast MLA

This reading will provide a space for writer-academics whose work straddles the creative-critical divide. Proposals that swerve, deviate, cross-generic and aesthetic bounds, and generally remain unclassifiable are encouraged.

This reading will take place at the 2015 NeMLA conference in Toronto, Canada. Please submit proposals via the NeMLA website and not via email:
