September 11 Memorial and Museum
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, April 1, 2017

This past September, thousands of family members gathered at the 9/11 Memorial to commemorate the 15th anniversary of the terrorist attacks of 2001. At this site, the effects of that day are still obvious: memorial fountains where the Twin Towers once stood, the steady drone of construction on surrounding projects still underway, rebuilding the devastation left behind, and two large steel tridents that once formed part of the external façade of the North Tower visible through the windows of the 9/11 Memorial Museum’s entry pavilion. Here, the effects of terror are evident. Here, to quote Pope Francis on his own visit to the site in 2015, “grief is palpable.”

The Future of Love

Despite its ubiquity in literature, music, and culture, the concept of love has received little critical attention in the academy and is often associated with the more negative aspects of critical discourse that are linked with femininity, such as softness and sentimentality. In an era when psychology is the most dominant mode of critical vocabulary and exploration, the notion of love that survives is overshadowed by theories of human desire such as ambivalence.

Extended Deadline - CFP:Italian Poetry from 1975 to present. Reconstructions and Interpretations of the Contemporary

Il pubblico della poesia (Cosenza: Lerici), edited by Alfonso Berardinelli and Franco Cordelli, was published in 1975. It is the first anthology to consider the poetic generation that appeared after 1968. The novelty of these poets was characterised in three main ways: the interruption of the linear relationship with Tradition; the «tendency towards the fast dissolution of the sociocultural and ideological figure of the Author»; and a change in the literary field. As argued by Berardinelli in the introduction: «[...] The Self that produces poetic texts in these years no longer resembles that of the great tradition of the twentieth century, and probably not even that of the author’s fathers and older brothers of the preceding twenty years ».
