CORRECTION!! LAST DAYS TO SUBMIT ABSTRACTS (June 5th)—CFP for ALA panel—Sense of Place in American Modernist Poetry and Visual Art

Friday, June 2, 2017 - 11:37am
American Literature Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 5, 2017

This panel explores the sense of place as part of the indigenous language of American artistic production of Modernism in the context of the European avant-garde. Though U.S. poets and artists were influenced by the formal techniques of Cubism, Futurism, Expressionism, Dadaism and Surrealism, they were also determined to search for the essence of an expressive language that defined its authenticity as opposed to European foreignness. One of their avenues of research was the exploration of the distinctive features of the American soil as a means of contributing novel aspects to modern aesthetics. The genuine character of the environment is closely linked to the strong attachment to rural or urban spaces and the value they acquire for the observer.

CFP: Conversations with the Past: Revising the Masters for PAMLA Conference 2017 Honolulu, Hawaii (11/10-12/2017)

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 - 4:40pm
Sandra M. Doe, Metropolitan State University of Denver, Tameca L Coleman, Regis University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, June 26, 2017

Past poetic texts grant contemporary poets opportunities for re-viewing, re-stating, re-casting, re-structuring, and re-iterating ideas and emotions. From Raymond Queneau’s Exercises in Style to Paul Hoover’s Sonnet 56, poets re-state classic human concerns about life and death, joy and sorrow. “Conversations with the Past” invites both scholarly and poetic submissions. You may submit a proposal for an analysis of contemporary poets who have re-viewed and re-vised past masters using contemporary poetics, or, alternatively, you may submit a proposal for a creative reading of your own poetry that reviews and revises past masters using contemporary poetics (or some hybrid version of a poetry reading and analysis presentation).

Darla Himeles, Temple University
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

Born in Pittsburgh in 1925, Gerald Stern is one of America’s most prominent, vibrant, and idiosyncratic contemporary poets. He is the author of eighteen collections of poetry (most recently Galaxy Love, W.W. Norton, 2017) and four collections of essays (most recently Death Watch, Trinity UP, 2017) and the recipient of numerous awards, including the Wallace Stevens Award and the 2014 Frost Medal. He has established himself as a distinctive voice that is accessible and sophisticated, gregarious and visionary. This roundtable will provide a lively critical examination of Stern’s work from a variety of perspectives and then invite discussion. 

Ecocriticism in the 21st Century (NeMLA)

Friday, September 22, 2017 - 10:13am
Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

The proposal H.R. 861, a bill recently introduced to terminate the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, prompts us to address the directions of ecocritical discourse in order to attend to the current material-specific, aesthetic, and rhetorical renderings of changing landscapes on a warming planet. What kind of citizenry is possible in environments overflowing with toxic waste? How do fossil fuels shape the imaginaries of urban and rural ecologies? What are the limits and possibilities of forensic and material analyses to shed light on catastrophic degradations of the environment without recuperating or fabricating disgust?

Call for papers: Erasure (FPC n° 14)

Erasure in poetry can take on various aspects. It can be the result of the poet’s revising her own work, or of a manipulation, possibly distortion, of an existing work. In the first case, it is part of the way a text is improved by being made more concise, more compact, and so more powerful. In the second, it can be either a textual substraction (we can think on Ezra Pound’s work on T.S. Eliot’s Waste Land), or a rewriting of the source text so as to remove part of its content and its form and so change its formal and semantic mechanisms.
