Ekphrasis in American Poetry
American poets have always been fascinated with art, and sometimes artists have been inspired by poems as the germ for their works. In this session we invite papers examining the mutual influence between poetry and other art forms and we encourage panelists to adopt a broad interpretation of the term "ekphrasis."

Please send 200-word abstracts for 15-20 minute talks by June 14th to Sandra Lee Kleppe, sandra.kleppe AT hihm.no
