What are the rhetorical parameters of human rights? How are rights defined, and who is entitled to them? This panel will engage with the ethical implications of formations of language in Transatlantic Modernist fiction. The Modernist era saw the development of a host of declarations, treaties, and conventions aiming to codify an emerging philosophy of supposedly "universal" human rights.

[UPDATE] "H.D. and the Image" feature is still seeking submissions of creative and critical work

Jacket

Submissions are currently being accepted for a feature, "H.D. and the Image," which is tentatively scheduled for publication in Jacket. The feature will focus on the relevance of Imagist technique to contemporary poetry, particularly the ways that poets today continue to draw from the Imagist tradition that Hilda Doolittle represented. Doolittle remains a unique figure in 20th century women's poetry, particularly because she continually revised her own definition of Imagist technique in transitioning from early works like Sea Garden to later book such as Helen in Egypt.
