CFP: Poetry and Urban Transformation (ACLA 2019 - Georgetown, March 7-10)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 10:41am
Davy Knittle (Penn) and Sarah Arkebauer (Columbia)
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 20, 2018

How does poetry model, resist and press against the material transformation of cities and urban regions? How do poems engage with urban change as it shapes the movement of people, commodities, and ideas, and as it curates affective experience and interior lives?

At a time when urban areas house the majority of the global population, and in which their continued uneven (re)development and decay perpetuates the stratification of access to material, social and economic resources, we are interested in how poetry across historical periods and geographies responds to, synthesizes, and participates in the transformation of the urban built environment.

deadline for submissions:

This roundtable will discuss practices of teaching the literary-cultural portrayal of modern global (ethno)nationalisms and the concurrent rise and proliferation of terrorism as well as the role that the “terror threat” plays in contemporary reactionary politics and policies. Our focus will be on the teaching of texts—both literary and cultural--written not by mainstream western authors and theorists, but by non-Western/diasporic writers and commentators so as to foreground the perspective of the Western Other(s).
