Early Modern Contemporary

Browning waxed Shakespearean; Eliot got metaphysical; Rich composed her own valediction. How, then, has recent poetry engaged the early modern imaginary--its politics and materialities, its new science and old weather, its generic conventions and characters.

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
