We are now forming panels for presentations of American poetry and poetics criticism at our 2013 conference. There are no limits in regard to historical period, topic, or theme, and we welcome panel proposals, especially those that include panelists from multiple institutions. Acceptances will ultimately depend on the availability of compatible presentations to form coherent panels.

If your research does not focus on poetry and poetics criticism but fits within the broad range of areas designated for the upcoming conference on American and Popular culture, we still encourage you to participate. Consult the conference website for a list of Area Chairs and their calls for papers.

Poet-critics who may wish to participate in the readings panels should contact either Jerry Bradley or Hugh Tribbey, via the conference website, in early fall.

Please forward this call to your colleagues and advanced graduate students.

We will review proposals on a rolling basis until the 2 December deadline.

Interested parties should apply at the conference website: http://conference2013.swtxpca.org

The registration deadline for all conference participants is 31 January 2013.
