CFP: [Theory] Poetry and Philosophy: Rethinking the Divide (4/21/08; MMLA, 11/13/08-11/16/08)

Jett McAlister

Recent discussions on poetry and philosophy have tended to focus on how these two modes of
writing might “think” differentlyâ€"while philosophy depends on logic, reason, or argumentation,
poetry has recourse to non-rational or trans-rational methods, affect, and musicality. But
discussions of poetry “thinking” are often reduced to the paraphrase of an argument supposedly
contained in the poem, an argument that seems to follow the rules of philosophy, traditionally
conceived. But rather than distinguishing between them, might we not consider what philosophy
can contribute to the reading of poetry, and poetry to the practice of philosophy? Rather than

CFP: [Poetry] Cultures of American Poetry / Midwest MLA

updated: 
Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 4:24pm
Wendy Roberts

Since F.O. Matthiessen defined the American renaissance almost seventy
years ago--sans poetry excepting Whitman--American literature has continued
to be equated with American fiction. This, Joseph Harrington writes,
“despite increased suspicion toward ‘theories of American literature’.” The
turn to cultural criticism in recent years has often meant a turn away from
poetry in favor of other genres not closely associated with New Criticism.
This panel seeks to redress the marginalization of American poetry and
invites papers addressing any aspect of poetry in the Americas and its
relation to American culture. Papers that attempt to theorize poetry’s

CFP: [American] American Studies Beyond the Center-Periphery Model (M/MLA)

updated: 
Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 12:01pm
Jason Malikow

Recent work on global circulatory systems has placed a center-periphery
model of global socioeconomic flows under a lot of scrutiny, frequently
asking whether or to what end this model remains relevant. This accepted
M/MLA panel seeks papers addressing what functions the center-periphery
model serves for an understanding of the circulation of texts, bodies,
ideas, especially in relation to the field of American studies.

CFP: [Victorian] NAVSA 2008 panel: Victorian Culture and the "Science of Language"

updated: 
Thursday, April 3, 2008 - 11:42am
Aaron S. Worth

This panel invites papers from a variety of disciplines exploring points
of contact between conceptions of language and the arts (and other fields
of cultural production) in Victorian Britain. The nineteenth century saw
the transformation of philology into “the science of language,” in
Müller’s phrase, witnessing the development of historical linguistics,
the emergence of evolutionary models of language, and the “discovery” of
language in the brain, as well as the publication of popular works on
language. Age-old questions were inserted into new paradigms, and asked
with a new urgency: post-Darwinian debates, for instance, over the
