This seminar proposal is for an ACLA 2017 seminar, which will be held in Utrecht from July 6-9, 2017.
The 45th Annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900
Panel: Comp/Rhet Theory and Pedagogy approaches to 20th and 21st Century American Poetry Studies
This roundtable session is seeking papers that consider how first person pronouns and declarative clauses are used in the American lyric and how their use potentially highlights the ways in which place and nationality work to construct notions of the self in relation to the collective body—work to construct a political economy of empathetic identification.
To submit papers, go to: http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention/callforpapers/submit.html
We are interested in the best unpublished work in a variety of genres. Please submit no more than five pieces total for consideration. This must be work that has not been published in print or online, including blog posts. Submit your work electronically, following the specific guidelines for the genre.

Brief abstracts are invited for a volume of essays about the uses of poetry in pedagogical contexts other than college English and Creative Writing courses. How (if at all) do instructors in other humanities, social science, and science disciplines engage with poetry? How do those working outside of the academy use poetry to promote literacy, cognition, or affective competence? We are negotiating with a major academic publisher and there will be a peer review process. At this point, we are just seeking 500 word abstracts for original scholarly essays. Please email 500-word abstracts, with cv, to Sandra Lee Kleppe, Hamar University College, firstname.lastname@example.org, by September 15, 2016.
