CFP Ecopoetics: Global Poetries and Ecologies, Deadline April 15, 2016

Isabel Campos / Montana Tech of U of Montana
contact email: 

This is a call for article-length scholarly contributions for inclusion in a proposed anthology broadly focused on the entangled relationship between poetries and ecologies.

Jonathan Skinner's edited journal, ecopoetics, published between 2001 and 2007, constituted a fertile platform of enquiry into the relationship between poetry and the environment, its meaning, possibilities, modus operandi, processes, objectives, tactics, and responses. Contributors proposed and presented writing that often opposed the traditional stance of nature poetry, which seeks to possess the natural world through the deployment of the word, casting a figurative net on a vanquished wilderness.

contact email: 

This panel considers the numerous ways in which the work of William Carlos Williams engages with socio-economic and political formations in the United States. Ranging from Williams's literary and political sympathies throughout his medical and literary career, we seek papers making a contribution to either Williams's studies or U.S. literary history in general. As the titles suggests, this panel is open to consider papers on other topics that tackle similar or relevant questions of concern in academia today.

CFP for MSA 18 (Pasadena, CA): Modernism's Planets

Planets colliding: Spivak, Friedman, Dimock. The 'planet', as metaphor, object, method, problem, and more, has made multiple entries into the discipline of literary studies, all of which bear on the study of modernism, broadly conceived. Ecocritical, postcolonial, and comparative methods have been at the forefront of the planetary conversation, but, as the word 'planet' suggests, there is more than enough room for more planetary interventions.
