Comparative Caribbeans: an Interdisciplinary Conference*

Emory University, Atlanta GA
November 3-5, 2011

This is why we stay with poetry. And despite our consenting to all the indisputable technologies; despite seeing the political leap that must be managed..., the full load of knowledge to be tamed..., at the bow there is still something we now share: this murmur, cloud or rain or peaceful smoke. …We cry our cry of poetry. Our boats are open, and we sail them for everyone.
– Édouard Glissant

Contemporary Trends in Poetry in English/translations
In the 21st century a perception or rather an apprehension sometimes surfaces that poetry will have a slow death in the techno-consumerist world. But contrary to apprehension poetry has survived and is thriving everywhere—in all forms of print and electronic media. In our next issue of the Rupkatha Journal on Interdisciplinary Studies in Humanities, we would like to explore various aspects of contemporary poetry in English/translations from different parts of the world.
