We invite submissions of abstracts of articles for an anthology on Race and Poetry. Abstracts should be submitted by Oct. 25, 2011. The goal is to generate an inclusive and broad exfoliation of the subject with an ear towards essays that will work in dialogue with each other, though not necessarily in agreement. Please include a short biographical statement with your abstract.
Essays appearing in the anthology will average 3,000 words. They can range from the lyric to the academic (hence, poets who are not scholars are invited to submit), but should be cited in Chicago style where citation is required. If an abstract is accepted, we'll send a note indicating any additional formatting requests.
