The thematic focus of this interdisciplinary conference relates principally to the concepts of authority and wisdom as they apply, and have applied, to the Irish nation in times of change. In recent times, Ireland has witnessed a profound reconfiguration in terms of its cultural, political, constitutional, and religious identities, resulting in an unparalleled questioning of the discourses and narratives that had seemingly defined the nation.
The E. E. Cummings Society and the Society's journal, Spring, invite abstracts for 20-minute papers for the 41st annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 21-23, 2013, at the University of Louisville (http://www.thelouisvilleconference.com). This session explores poet E. E. Cummings' role in a transforming modernism that breaks the barrier between language and arts.
