Thursday, November 15, 2012 - 1:48pm
The Rat's Mouth Review - Florida Atlantic University

All submissions due by December 1st, 2012.

In 1913, Ezra Pound articulated the literary imperative for the modernists' age: "Any work of art which is not a beginning, an invention, a discovery is of little worth," and later urged artists to "Make it New." Conversely, the Hebraic King Solomon wrote, "What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun" (Ecc. 1:9 NIV).

Making It Work: US Thought and Culture Between Praxis and Paralysis, April 5-6 2013

Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 5:29pm
US Literatures and Cultures Consortium at the University of Michigan

Are there distinctively American attitudes toward objectivity and truth, judgment and action? Two of the most enduring cliches about US culture are, first, that its thought characteristically refuses universal grounds, and second, that it privileges material practicality over theoretical or metaphysical abstraction. Yet without universal grounds, how can we be convinced that anything is worth doing? Let's grant that it is; such a groundless granting may initially let us act with a sense of freedom and unlimited potential, but justifying or revising that action requires us to establish provisional grounds that can themselves be hedged, negotiated, interrogated to the paralyzing point of infinity.
