On the occasion of George Oppen’s 100th birthday, the Poetics Program at SUNY Buffalo will be
hosting a two-day event, involving scholarly panels, round table talks, keynote addresses by
invited guests, and evening poetry readings. We are currently welcoming submissions of
scholarly papers / presentations on any aspect of George Oppen’s life and work. We are
especially interested in work being produced by younger poets and scholars who are currently
engaged with Oppen’s contributions. In keeping with the spirit of this eventâ€"our invited guests
are all active as both poets and scholarsâ€"we gladly welcome writing about Oppen that crosses
the boundary between prose scholarship and poetic criticism.

The deadline for submission of abstracts is February 15, 2008. Abstracts should be no more than
250 words; presenters will have 20 minutes each for their presentations with time for discussion
afterward. Please send abstracts to oppenevent_at_gmail.com. Notices of acceptance will be sent
by March 1.
