Bangor University (CONTEMPO in collaboration with Aberystwyth University)

A one-day symposium featuring keynote contributions from Pierre Joris and Allen Fisher. Deadline for abstracts: April 2nd.

A nomadic poetics is … always changing, morphing, moving through languages, cultures, terrains, times without stopping. Refuelling halts are called poases, they last a night or a day, the time of a poem, & then move on. A nomadic poetics needs mindfulness in & of the drift (dérive) - there is no at-homeness here, but only an ever more displaced drifting. For the language to be accurate to the condition of nomadicity, it too has to be drifting, to be always 'on the way', as Celan puts it.
