A virtual international conference, 24‒26 June 2021

From the Cliffs of Moher to the Valley of the Elwy, from leafy countrysides to city centres “smeared” with everyday life, Gerard Manley Hopkins was acutely attuned to environmental conditions. The 2021 international Hopkins conference, to be held virtually 24 to 26 June 2021, will consider the many environments in which he worked: natural, textual, aesthetic, political, theological, Jesuitical, and social.

“A ‘world’ need not be a construction of a whole society. It may be a construction of a tiny portion of a particular society. It may be inhabited by just a few people. Some ‘worlds’ are bigger than others.”

Hip-hop is one of the most successful forms of global cultural production today. Since its emergence in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City, it has spread around the world and exerted a considerable impact not only on pop culture, but also on social debates around race, class, language, nationality, gender, and a range of other issues. One topic that is rarely discussed, however, is the relationship between hip-hop and the environment.

deadline for submissions: 
Tuesday, February 16, 2021

Jonathan Bayliss created a fictional science called "dromenology" in his Gloucesterman series which was meant to study collective human endeavor. In contrast to the Romantic concept of individual action, this science describes activity conducted by humans as groups: work and play, religious ritual, and artistic endeavors such as dance or drama. He conceptualized such activity as the work that staves off entropy in the thermodynamic systems we call communities or societies.

Poetry's Publics and Counterpublics

ACLA 2021
deadline for submissions: 
Saturday, October 31, 2020

This panel invites discussion on how poets have negotiated the construction of publics and counterpublics in our loosely defined contemporary moment. While writers have long been interested in the genre’s ability to foment and critique the production of virtual and actual modes of togetherness, we aim to address poetry’s engagements with collectivity after the rise of mass media and the opening up of political and aesthetic representation to diverse identities and electorates that defined the postwar period in the United States. What kinds of social bodies can texts and politics produce in this realm? What does the study of poetry reveal about historical shifts in the ways collectivity gets experienced and conceptualized?

CONFERENCE ONLINEScientific Committee:Professor Wojciech Owczarski – University of Gdańsk, PolandProfessor Polina Golovátina-Mora - Universidad Pontificia Bolivariana (Colombia) CFP: In our modern world, which some have argued to be disjointed while immersing itself ever deeper in crisis, the turning back towards “the olden days” and the ensuing nostalgia constitute a noticeable phenomenon, both individually (the memory of biography) and collectively (the memory of History). Another important – and seemingly also quite noticeable – phenomenon  is the longing for something vague, indefinite or never existent.     Hence, during our interdisciplinary conference we would like to concentrate on the phenomena of nostalgia and melancholy.

Recent poetry scholarship has begun to trace how some of the most normative concepts in poetry studies (meter, free verse, lyric, the speaker, voice) are enmeshed within broader systems of white supremacy and imperialism. Yet these concepts often go unchallenged in college classrooms. This seminar asks, how might this scholarship change the way we teach poetry and poetics--in any language, at any level, from Introduction to Poetry to advanced graduate seminars?

Atelier of Healing: Poetry About Trauma and Recovery, an anthology, is scheduled for publication in 2021. “When I stand before thee at the day’s end,” Rabindranath Tagore said, “thou shalt see my scars and know that I had my wounds and also my healing.” We have all experienced pain of some kind — heartbreak, illness, distress, abuse, violence, disaster, loss, grief. What kind of personal suffering have you endured and weathered? If one were to navigate such trauma, what are some of the coping mechanisms? How, then, will you render your personal experience into lyric and narrative, to transform the pain into something of profound beauty?Poetry has long been known to be one of the great traditional healing arts, alongside dance, music, painting, theatre.
