Repasting the Elegy: Public Mourning

For this panel, we seek poets working in the elegy form. More specifically, we seek works of contemporary elegy that challenge the foundational components of the historic elegy. The panel will explore the use of the elegy as praxis for protest, whether by vocalizing unheard voices or advocating social justice issues.  How do you mediate between personal and public lamentations as a form of protest? How do you challenge the historical foundations of the elegy to account for recent political events and personal reactions to them?

Revisiting the Elegy: Mourning and Resistance

“And there is pause, a breathspace in the strife;/A spirit brave has passed beyond the mists/And vapors that obscure the sun of life./And
Ethiopia, with bosom torn,/Laments the passing of her noblest born.”

Call for Submissions - Eborakon Issue 4

Eborakon Poetry Journal
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, April 2, 2017

Eborakon is an annual poetry magazine based at the University of York, publishing new writers alongside established poets. The name is derived from the Brythonic for York, meaning “place of the yews”. We value writing that is rooted, both in the resonances of language as it has been used over the course of history, and in the evocation of place. We are nourished by the writers and critics who have preceded us, at the same time branching out to explore the future. Like the yew, for us poetry is mysterious and earthly, real matter that is potentially dangerous to savour.

In keeping with this year’s MMLA Convention theme, “Art and Activism,” I welcome papers that address social/political activism in nineteenth-century British literature and culture. Possible topics include, but are certainly not limited to: writers as social critics; the Victorian social problem novel; radical lyric and narrative representations; Aesthetes, Decadents, and the idea of “Art for Art’s sake”; and humanists, humanitarians, and social activists in life and fiction.

Please send a 250-word abstract and a brief bio. by April 5th, 2017 to Bailey Shaw at bshaw@siu.edu.
