'The Moment Made Eternal': At The Intersection of Photography and Poetry [NEMLA 2015; Toronto; April 30-May 3, 2015]

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.

Amiri Baraka and the Black Arts Movement: Redefining Black Literary Aesthetic

2015 Annual Convention of Northeast Modern Language Association (NEMLA)

The recent death of Amiri Baraka, the co-founder of the Black Arts Movement (BAM), offers a unique opportunity to assess his legacy, the movement, and the current direction of African American literature. As a poet, Baraka's work embodied the role of the Black artist/activist as one who 're-evaluate[s] the western aesthetic...the social function of the artist…and develops a new Black aesthetic' – ideals outlined in Larry Neal's manifesto, 'The Black Arts Movement.' In addition, BAM birthed numerous artistic innovations, in particular a reemphasis on orality and the call and response tradition.

Call for Papers, Poetry, and Prose
WSQ Special Issue Fall 2015: The 1970s
Guest Editors: Shelly Eversley and Michelle Habell-Pallán

The 1970s was a revolutionary moment for women. It transformed the very notion of female power regarding their bodies, their pleasure, and their work. In addition, women's activisms in the decade shaped new paradigms for thinking about race, sexuality, reproductive rights, labor, colonialism, technology and the environment. Inaugural moments in film, music, television, sports, visual arts, and computing remain crucial landmarks in debates and interventions concerning pornography, sex work, sound studies, digital feminism, legal theory, and religion.

Finding a coin in a street gutter, the protagonist of Charles Reznikoff's 1930 novel By the Waters of Manhattan concludes, "If there was woodcraft . . . he was master of a new science, citycraft." Though his sense of mastery is short-lived, the language of his expression points toward a method of grappling with the economic realities of modern city life that aligns with what Tim Armstrong identifies as a conflict between the modern and the inherited.
