[UPDATE] Charles Olson and Influence, 12/15/2012; ALA 5/23-26/2013

Gary Grieve-Carlson / The Charles Olson Society

Charles Olson's influence on avant-garde poetry began in the 1950s with the publication of "Projective Verse," the first volumes of "The Maximus Poems," and Don Allne's "The New American Poetry." One thinks of Creeley, Dorn, Duncan, Baraka, Ginsberg, Eshleman, Howe, Waldman, and others who have acknowledged that influence, but it also shows up where one doesn't expect it (in a poet like Amy Clampitt, for example). This panel asks whether Olson's influence is now merely historical, or whether it persists. If it has ended, why has it ended? If it persists, how does it persist? In other words, does Olson matter for contemporary poetry?

Itineration: Cross-Disciplinary Studies in Rhetoric, Media, and Culture

Itineration: Cross-Disciplinary Studies in Rhetoric, Media, and Culture is an international, refereed publication devoted to mapping the intersections of rhetoric, media, and culture. The journal is founded on the notion that the study of persuasion—what it is, that it is, how it operates and is operated upon—is a broad and complex area of scholarship open to multiple lines of investigation through a variety of disciplines, genre, and media. Itineration is a wandering process of discovery and invention. It discovers as it constructs what it discovers through practice. In the context of the journal, itineration calls for wandering through disciplines, genre, and media in pursuit of the rhetorical.
