CFP: Poetic Form and Disability (3/1/07; MLA '07)

A Special Session for the MLA 2007 conference in Chicago:

"Poetic Form and Disability"

We welcome proposals that address intersections, opportunities,
aesthetic challenges and disjunctures between poetics and disability
studies. The emphasis is on formal approaches: we are less interested
in poetry that narrates disability, or whose authors happen to be
disabled, but rather in approaches to poetry and poetry criticism that
locate disability in, through, and with formal elements. We understand
disability here as a social formation, playing across embodiment and
cultural embedment: but what shape this political understanding of
disability takes might very well be part of the investigation.

Etudes Irlandaises will attempt to define, analyse and evaluate these
changes from a resolutely contemporary perspective, focusing on the
men, women and children who are the actors and products of these
changes and who embody them - or distinguish themselves from them -
in their perceptions and representations.

Suggested topics might include but are not limited to :
