Monday, January 31, 2011 - 6:21pm

Though various scholars (Thomson, Mitchell and Snyder, Holmes, Quayson) have produced essential recent studies of disability in British, American, and World Literature, the application of Disability Studies to literary studies has often focused on the genres of prose fiction and non-fiction. This special session at the PAMLA Annual Conference will promote the further study of disability in poetry. Proposals are invited for papers concerning such topics as the representation of disability in verse, the meaning of a "poetics" of disability, and/or the work of disabled poets from any time period or region.
