Living Enclosures

Stony Brook University 36th Annual English Graduate Conference
deadline for submissions:

Enclosure is as much origin-story as it is globally contested condition. Critical accounts positioning the act of enclosure as integral to the root-systems of global capitalism, environmental catastrophe and precarity often refer to the historical effort by landowners to do away with the commons in favor of legally and politically recognized enclosures. Transforming sustainable agricultural practices into sites of energy-production primed for capital development, the early-modern enclosure movement gave rise to what Robert P. Marzec characterizes as “a model of the human that took as its direct enemy an environment thought to be threatening because it had yet to be properly secured, privatized, and cultivated” (18).

updated: 
Thursday, December 7, 2023 - 4:12pm

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, February 28, 2024

This panel invites researchers to consider how African American writers deploy humor within what critics have termed the “post-soul,” “post-Black,” “Black post-Blackness,” and “New Black Aesthetic” movements. Derek C. Maus, in Post-Soul Satire (2014), notes that the propensity for Black satirists to turn their critiques inward at the Black community rather than outwardly toward white institutions marks a key shift from ‘soul’ to ‘post-soul’ aesthetics.

Jazz and American Poetics: From The New American Poetry to Contemporary Verse

updated: 
Thursday, November 9, 2023 - 2:54pm
Charles Olson Society; Amiri Baraka Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 26, 2024

The Charles Olson Society and the Amiri Baraka Society will co-sponsor a session at the annual American Literature Association Conference, to be held in Chicago, May 23-26. This year, our two societies are pleased to announce a collaboration around the theme of jazz and its relation to the development of experimental American poetry. As Charles Olson once stated in a series of talks titled “On Black Mountain”: “Boy, there was no poetics. It was Charlie Parker. Literally, it was Charlie Parker.” Olson was thinking back to his 1950s correspondence with Robert Creeley, who consistently wrote to Olson about the importance of Parker’s bop rhythms for his own poetics. In the talk, Olson equates the entirety of the New American Poetry with just Charlie Parker.
