Mantis at Stanford: call for poetry translations

updated: 
Tuesday, August 30, 2016 - 11:29am
Mantis: A Journal of Poetry, Criticism, and Translation
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 15, 2016

Mantis is interested in publishing translations that will expose our readers to compelling and unfamiliar poems. All languages will be considered--we've featured work from Tamil, Italian, Danish, and Farsi--and all translations appear side-by-side with the original. 

Please submit your translations (with the original) via Submittable as a single file. We'd also appreciate a brief note introducing the poet you're translating. This can appear in your cover letter or within your submission itself. This should help us contextualize the poet in question and would--we imagine--become the basis for the short introductions that we run with our translated poems.

The present moment of history is a difficult one to write, particularly for a growing body of North American poets with an increasingly urgent political focus. History, for these poets, consists of a complicated range of catastrophic events in the making, as the convergence of institutional racism, uneven development, and ecological degradation set the conditions for pervasive sense of crisis. The present therefore demands political engagement from a number of angles—racial, economic, ecological, to name a few—at once. The contingencies of the present as a temporal category, more generally, recall the boundary-crossing potential of event-making on the move—history “in solution,” as Raymond Williams put it.

Poetic Thinking (ACLA 2017)

Contemporary poets like J. H. Prynne, Denise Riley, and John Wilkinson have explored the nature and scope of an alternative mode of ‘thinking’ in poetry. Aided by late modernist reformulations of poetic difficulty, these poets continue the Romantic legacy by reconfiguring poetry as essentially theoretical. For the Cambridge school, ‘poetic thinking’ does not involve a simple rehashing of philosophical ideas in poetic diction, but as Simon Jarvis points out, these poems instead of accommodating philosophy within their formal structures are in themselves philosophic. Such a reconsideration of the poem as a cognitive product affords a metaphysical truth that is at once noble and transcendent.

A reviewer of Claudia Rankine's Citizen writes, "One problem with writing poetry about political or historical issues is that poetry proves a terrible method for transmitting information."  This is an assertion we have encountered before.  Regarding Ezra Pound's Cantos, Donald Davie writes, "Whatever more long-term effect Pound's disastrous career may have on American and British poetry, it seems inevitable that it will rule out (has ruled out already, for serious writers) any idea that poetry can or should operate in the dimensio of history, trying to make sense of the recorded past by redressing our historical perspectives. . . .

South Asia and Latin America: Intellectual Junctures and Affinities

Paper abstracts are invited for a roundtable panel at the 48th Annual NeMLA Convention, March 23-26, 2017 (Baltimore, Maryland, U.S.A.)

While studies of the Global South and South-South connections are of more recent vintage, unconventional intellectual exchanges of this type have long been occurring "off the grid." Specifically, such exchanges were occurring between South Asia and Latin America long before talk of BRICs and 'third world solidarity'. This session examines such intellectual junctures and affinities.

CFP NeMLA 2017: Economy of I's: Bartering Subjects & the Multiplied Self in the American Lyric

deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

This roundtable session is seeking papers that consider how first person pronouns and declarative clauses are used in the American lyric and how their use potentially highlights the ways in which place and nationality work to construct notions of the self in relation to the collective body—work to construct a political economy of empathetic identification.
