This panel, which will be proposed for the American Literature Association meeting in San Francisco (May 24-27, 2018), will examine Hejinian’s stunning oeuvre from a variety of critical perspectives. Paper proposals should include a title, 500-word description, the potential presenter’s short professional bio (publications, awards, academic rank and affiliation). Query ASAP for more information.
