ALA 2017: Gwendolyn Brooks at 100

In “Gwendolyn Brooks at 73,” Haki Madhubuti compared Brooks’s mind to “a tornado redefining the landscape.” The landscape of contemporary literature has been changed by her poems: “poems with muscle and sinew, poems that weren’t afraid to take the language and revamp it, twist it and energize it so that it shimmied and dashed and lingered,” in the words of Rita Dove. At least two new collections—Quraysh Ali Lansana and Sandra Jackson-Opoku’s Revise the Psalm, and Peter Kahn, Ravi Shankar, and Patricia Smith’s The Golden Shovel Anthology—will celebrate her centennial in 2017.

deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, January 15, 2017

We are living through a decade of centenaries as we remember or reimagine the cataclysmic events of a century ago which helped to shape the modern world – the Great War, the Easter Rising, the Bolshevik Revolution. Each year provides an opportunity to reflect on the nature and problematics of commemoration. This conference provides a venue to explore the relationship between remembering and writing, and to consider connections between personal, collective and national memories. Participants will explore the theme of “remembering” in its widest sense, from personal memories in diaries and oral histories, to collective memory housed in public records or embodied in history, literature, folklore, and mythology. Graduate students welcome.

The Green World in Contemporary Poetry and Philosophy: Mapping Nature in the Twentieth and Twenty-First Centuries

Since the very cradle of civilization, Nature has been one of the secular concerns of poetry and philosophy. In a classic like Walden; or Life in the Woods (1854), Henry David Thoreau said: “I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately”. The woods would make him whole again; solitude and Nature would reactivate a claritas of mind in him that had apparently been overshadowed by human commerce. About a century later, Ezra Pound sang in The Cantos: “Learn of the green world what can be thy place / In scaled invention or true artistry” (81/541), aware as he was of the fact that the world is a subtle ecology of vast dimensions that needs our attention and respect.
