In keeping with SAMLA's 2011 special focus, "The Power of Poetry in the Modern World," this special session seeks papers that address the ways in which poetry has derived, ceded, and wielded power in a modern world mediated by print. Possible topics include: the power of print to shape poetic form and meaning; the power of such print outlets as the anthology and modern magazine to popularize or restrict the audience for poetry; the bibliographical means by which poetry has expressed or challenged power; the ways in which poetry questions the power of modern print through an emphasis on orality or through an embrace of the digital.
