POETS & POETRY PANEL
L'ENVERS DU DECOR: A WALK ON THE WILD SIDE
L'Envers du décor
47th Annual SAES (Société des Anglicistes de l'Enseignement Supérieur)
Avignon, France : 11th, 12th and 13th May 2007
Université d'Avignon et des Pays de Vaucluse.
What takes place centre-stage starts life behind the scenes. The chaotic
become disciplined, the underground overground, expressions of freedom are
constrained. What are we to make, however, of this flipside and of those
that choose to walk on the wild side?
The aim of this year's Poets & Poetry panel is to focus discussion on how
and why poets deal with the disorderly. We invite proposals for papers which
examine particular poems, so that the panel debate can build up around an
emerging series of tableaux salvaged from 'Desolation Row'.
Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
You may address any type of English language poetry from any period.
Papers should be no longer than 30 minutes.
Please send your title and 300 word abstract by 1st December 2006 to:
Raphaël Costambeys-Kempczynski & Helen Goethals
Thank you and we look forward to reading your proposals.
