[ACLA 2018] Migratory Forms and Their Affective Challenges

Thursday, September 7, 2017 - 10:46am
Jackie Kim, Harvard University; Melih Levi, Stanford University
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 21, 2017

This seminar probes the significance of poetic forms as an affective vehicle in the context of their cross-cultural circulation and adaptation. How do migratory forms preserve, permute, and perform their affective potential as they cross linguistic and cultural borders? How does the question of forms and their transcultural adaptability reconfigure the principle of (un)translatability? How does cross-cultural transference complicate the affective potentiality of a form? What does a form lose and gain in such processes of global translation? What are, if at all existent, the responsibilities of a poet experimenting with borrowed forms?
