POETICS OF SPACE
While its title is borrowed from Gaston Bachelardâ€™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 â€œspacesâ€ are thought of, constructed, arranged, and removed in a
wide array of literature, media, and/or other terrains. Possible topics
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
Non-fictional uses of waste
Space and cultural construction
