11 Literature in English Symposium: Poetry and Beyond

updated: 
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 - 9:20am
Faculty of English, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland

LIES 2015 asks the fundamental questions of contemporary culture: What is the stance of poetry today? Can poets still be venerated as leaders of nations? Is poetry "relegated" to universities? Muldoon's Oxford Lectures in Poetry (2006) are entitled The End of the Poem, yet like in John Donne's Holy Sonnets, the end of one poem is the beginning of the next one.

The guests of honour at LIES 2015 (15-16th May 2015) are Paul Muldoon as well as Nick Hayes, a political cartoonist and the author of the graphic novel, Rime of the Modern Mariner – and thus we are going through Poetry into the Beyond!

Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World

The second issue of Angles, the new online journal published by the SAES, will aim at examining "angles and limes" in Anglo-American studies.

The purpose of this particular issue is to gather articles focusing both on the specific angles of each discipline and their limits, and on the instances when borders are crossed and limits are passed—must be passed—to further research. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals developing and clarifying their own practices as regards limits and angles.

Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World

For its inaugural issue, Angles: French Perspectives on the Anglophone World welcomes original proposals inspired by the celebrated aphorism: 'Brevity is the soul of wit'.

This issue of Angles will be an opportunity to discuss the links with humor, irony, and short forms of expression (mots d'esprit, soundbites, slogans) in a host of contexts: literary, linguistic, social, political
and artistic.

11th Literature in English Symposium: Poetry and Beyond with Muldoon and Hayes

"I am with Raleigh, near the Atlantic" writes Paul Muldoon in "Promises, Promises" from the volume Why Brownlee Left ( ). Even though Plato wanted to banish poets from the (ideal?) Republic, poets and poetry have remained part of the social life. After all, the Romantics believed in the inborn superiority of literature as a mode of knowledge and judgment. Literature and not history or philosophy carried the meaning of life. Victorians placed a poet not above but within his/her community thereby asserting his or her social utility.

Bodies that Sell: Commodification and Cultural Marketplaces

University of Massachusetts-Amherst (English Graduate Organization)

We make assumptions based on bodies all the time: what bodies are
normative, strange, dangerous, fragile, familiar, foreign, and so on. The bodies we see are always-already constructed and commodified within various cultural marketplaces. Bodies function as currencies, some of which have more cultural capital than others. This cultural capital lends visibility to some bodies, while rendering others invisible.
