CFP: [Romantic] Poetics of Space - Abstract 2/27 â Conference 4/3-4/4

full name / name of organization: 
Alan Lovegreen


While its title is borrowed from Gaston Bachelard’s work, this CFP
broadens its focus to include not only theories or politics of domestic
spaces, but asks contributors to also interrogate how larger, more
abstract “spaces” are thought of, constructed, arranged, and removed in a
wide array of literature, media, and/or other terrains. Possible topics
may include:

Physical, theoretical, and corporeal spaces
City planning or infrastructure
Urban/suburban space in theory or literature
Surplus / excess
Psychological implications of space
Space in rural settings
Social displacement
Non-fictional uses of waste
Space and cultural construction

Abstracts of 250-300 words should be e-mailed to by February
27, 2009 (text in the body of the message; please no attachments).

This panel is part of the (dis)junctions 2009 graduate student
conference, Brave New Worlds, at the University of California, Riverside.
(dis)junctions 2009 will take place on April 3 through April 4, 2009.
