Fabricating the Body: Race and the Body.
Abstract submission deadline: April 20, 2009.

This M/MLA session will explore constructions of race as particularized in physical as well as cultural fabrications of the body.

Explorations of the ways race inflects the body in gendered or ethnic spaces are welcome, as are studies of racial constructions of the criminal, sexual, medical, or historical body. All topics dealing with literature or cultural studies from any time period or area will be considered, but papers adhering most closely to the convention theme of "migration" will be given preference.

Almost fifty years ago, Hans-Georg Gadamer's Truth and Method (1960) appeared. Among philosophers and theologians, this classic study of interpretation has enjoyed a spectacular reception history. But what sort of Gadamerian influences can be traced in the humanities (history, art history, classics, literary studies, etc.)? How has Truth and Method changed the humanities?

I am seeking articles, interviews, and even some creative responses to the
work of the American poet/theorist Charles Bernstein for the forthcoming
book The Salt Companion to Charles Bernstein. The articles can deal with
any aspect of Bernstein's work, from specific books of poetry and theory to
his poetic influences to his part in the L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E movement.

Completed articles should range from 6,500-10,000 words, though exceptions
can be made for exceptional articles.

MMLA

"Finding Form in Contemporary Innovative Poetry." Many innovative poets have begun to re-incorporate, redevelop, or find new forms based on techniques such as counting. The participants will explore the variety of new forms, single author explorations of innovative forms, or the new directions in contemporary poetry signaled by combining innovative techniques with traditional forms.
