Call for essays on event and sound - on the temporal dimension - in
poetry, for a special international issue of ESC: English Studies in

We welcome critical writing on poetry broadly conceived of as an event in
sound and time, ramifying through the social, language, technology,
history. We encourage contributions that extend recent work on questions
of orality, oratures, aurality, voice, performance, close listening,
spoken word, phonotext, live events, audio recording, etc., to questions
of temporality and the event.

We invite contributors to design their essays around the inclusion of
recorded material, as this special issue will feature an accompanying cd.
We therefore encourage contributors to provide recorded material and to
refer to it - and when appropriate to design contributions around this cd

We ask that essays be no less than 1 250 and no more than 4 000 words and
that we receive them no later than 1 February 2008. Please contact us
regarding any questions you may have.
