Robinson Jeffers Association

Conference Theme: "Posthumous Reputation … the Only Kind Worth Considering": Robinson Jeffers at 125.

Keynote Address, Christopher Cokinos, poet, science-and-nature writer.

No major poet has been treated worse by posterity than Robinson Jeffers," wrote Dana Gioia in December 1987, the final month of the Jeffers centenary. Thirty years before his death, Jeffers was considered one of America's preeminent poets, his place in the canon seemingly secure, his portrait featured on the 4 April 1932 cover of Time. Less than five decades later, he was excluded in the first edition of the Norton Anthology of American Literature (1979), included in a few subsequent editions, and then excluded again.

Imaginatio et Ratio: A Journal of Theology and the Arts

Imaginatio et Ratio: A Journal of Theology and the Arts is a peer reviewed journal primarily focusing on the intersection between the arts and theology, hoping to allow imagination and reason to be seen as intimately intertwined–as different expressions of the same divine truth. Imaginatio et Ratio was started in the hopes that it could serve a growing community of artists and thinkers and strives to present accessible but high quality art, literary fiction, creative non-fiction, and theology/philosophy–as well as interviews and book, film, art and music reviews. The journal is published twice a year and is available in print and a digital format.

Call for Papers: Special Issue, The Comparatist

We welcome contributions that examine the representation and staging of antagonism in comparative studies and literary theory. How might one conceive of antagonism today? Why are certain forms of antagonism readily made visible while others remain hidden—or simply disavowed? How does the field of literary studies manage its own antagonism(s)? Is antagonism—antagonistic rivalry between critics—a hindrance to the faithful work of interpretation? Or is it better understood as, or in terms of, the field's engine of change? Topics of interest could include:

This panel seeks papers that examine the relation between state, culture, and empire in excess of nationalist framings. American studies and related scholarship, particularly in critical ethnic studies, has decentered US national culture, demonstrating the ways in which the material practices of racial slavery, colonial expansion and empire, gendered and racialized labor exploitation, incarceration and permanent war generated and persist as the conditions of possibility for the emancipatory claims of U.S. political modernity.
