Reminder: Considering Modernist Confusion (NeMLA 2018 Pittsburgh)

Thursday, June 8, 2017 - 6:07pm
Northeastern Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, September 30, 2017

This panel reflects on the place of confusion in British and American modernism. Confusion has not been traditionally considered a proper scholarly response to textual analysis; critics are supposed to interpret a text rather than allow themselves to experience its uncertainties. What happens when we explore the confusion we feel when reading not as something to be worked through, but as something to be worked with? Building on affect theorists’ work on how our feelings can influence the way we read, such as Eve Sedgwick’s reparative reading and Rita Felski’s reflective and post-critical reading, how can considering confusion change both our experience of reading and our critical practices?

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

updated: 
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)

updated: 
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).
