Modernist Whitman (Proposed panel for MSA 18)

This proposed panel for MSA 18 will explore the ways in which modernist poets, critics, and academics reacted to and against Walt Whitman, constructing complicated literary historical and social legacies. From Ezra Pound's begrudging acknowledgment that Whitman "broke the new wood" to Amy Lowell's assertion that "Whitman fell into his own peculiar form through ignorance"€ to Michael Gold's claim that Whitman was "America's first proletariat poet," Whitman was at the heart of debates about what constituted modern poetic form and modern social identities. This panel seeks to interrogate the ways in which cultural workers in the modernist era used the figure of Whitman to construct usable pasts, poetic futures, and imagined communities.

Running Wild: Library Archives, Faculty Engagement, and the Artist Book PAMLA Nov 11-13, 2016

Pacific Ancient and Modern Languages Association

Academic archives and special collections are treasure troves for student engagement. These repositories contain tactile examples of institutional history that are instrumental for student research and inspirational for student creativity. Increasingly teaching faculty are collaborating with archivists and librarians in the promotion and use of these unique treasures. From these materials, students draw inspiration, often transforming the notion of what constitutes a book. Archives in turn may curate these works, documenting student research and properties for future generations. We invite presentations of work derived from or inspired by archival holdings and present strategies for encouraging similar artistic expression and curation.
