topics related to Beat authors, poetics, aesthetics, culture, or geography.  Some possibilities include:

--underrepresented Beat writers

--the "graying" of the Beats

--the place of Beat Studies in academia

--the Beats in San Francisco

--lessons from the Beats in the current political era

 

Please send a brief (250-500 word) proposal and a one-paragraph bio as a Word document to Prof. Deborah Geis (dgeis@depauw.edu).
