CFP: World Poetry in Translation (4/1/06; SAMLA, 11/4/06-11/6/06)

Saturday, February 11, 2006 - 7:45pm
Gordon McNeer

Samla members who are translators of poetry from any foreign language
into English are cordially invited to submit samples of their works for
to Dr. Gordon E. McNeer. The panel often is constructed around a
theme, but
this is not always the case so any type of work is welcome. Typically,
introduce their translation and then read from it. Discussion is at the
end. In most
cases, presentations are limited to fifteen minutes.

"Reimagining History in Post-Imperial Britain"

Contemporary British literature has seen a resurgence of historical fiction
(broadly understood) that that re-visits and re-narrates iconic moments of
English history. These historical questions ultimately engage the ways in which
England's post-imperial experiences have changed our perception of what it
means, and has meant, to be British. This proposed panel will explore recent
literary articulations of England's history that interrogate and reframe British
identity. Papers addressing literature after 1990 are especially encouraged.
