Call for Papers: Experimental Writing and Aesthetics
Abstract/Proposals by 1 December 2011
Southwest/Texas Popular & American Culture Associations 33rd Annual Conference
Albuquerque, NM, February 8-11, 2012
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque
Albuquerque, NM 87102
Panels are now forming on topics related to Experimental Writing and Aesthetics in contemporary American poetry in such areas as
• the aesthetics of experimental writing in any genre or in multi-genre/multi-media works including digital and graphic compositions involving language,
• the poetics of performance of experimental compositions,
• critical studies of experimental writers and/or movements such as Foulipo or conceptual writing,
• and fictocritical treatments or extended manifestoes, etc.
Creative writers interested in the selective creative writing readings panels should contact Jerry Bradley, Creative Writing Readings Chair, via < http://swtxpca.org/ >. (Creative writing is just as welcome as critical work.) Conference organizers will try to schedule similar sessions together, so tell Dr. Bradley you are an experimental writer to make it easier to attend each other's sessions.
Scholars, teachers, professionals, writers not affiliated with academic institutions, undergraduates as well as graduate students, and others interested in experimental writing are encouraged to participate. Graduate students are also particularly welcome with award opportunities for best graduate papers.
Individual presentations should be 15-20 minutes in length.
You may organize your own panel, but please recognize the scheduling flexibility of the conference is limited.
Send abstracts, papers, or proposals for panels electronically with your email address by 1 December 2011 with "SW/TX PCA Submission" typed in the subject line to:
