Special Relationships: Poetry Across the Atlantic Since 2000
We are delighted to announce the Call for Papers for Special Relationships: Poetry Across the Atlantic Since 2000, a one-day symposium exploring the interstices of poetics in the circum-Atlantic region since 2000, to be held at the Rothermere American Institute at the University of Oxford on May 19, 2017.
Works of literature, the visual arts, drama, dance, and music have long been addressed to readers, viewers, and listeners, both real and imagined. Whether implicit or explicit, the ways artists address, court, and affect their audiences are crucial to understanding their work. But while traditional ideas about audience often denote passive reception or disinterested judgment, certain artistic forms recast the observer as an active participant and/or collaborator in the construction of the art object’s meaning.
The Andrew Marvell Society has partnered with the Open Library of Humanities to publish our flagship journal, Marvell Studies. Peer-reviewed, MLA-indexed, and completely open access, the journal is now open to general submissions: http://marvell.openlibhums.org/.
The Poetics of Mapping: Representing the Built Environment
University of Pennsylvania
April 20-21, 2017
This graduate student conference is conceived as an opportunity to think more broadly about the ways that poetry shapes and is shaped by the environment in which it exists and the way qualitative visual representations of cities are shaped by non-narrative usages of language. It seeks to bring graduate students in city planning and the larger social sciences together with students who are putting poetry into conversation with spatial forms.
