Topics might range from the treatment of common, ordinary subjects in works like Lyrical Ballads and Leaves of Grass to attempts to theorize the everyday in light of industrialization, imperialism, and world war. Also welcome are papers that address the conjunction/disjunction of the everyday with new discourses of statistics, probability, and normalization in the emerging social sciences.

Submission requirements: 250-word abstracts from critics and/or poets. Depending on the number of submissions, this might be either a round-table or a panel session.

Deadline for submissions: 17 March 2012
