FPC 12 THE READERLY

Recently we have talked a great deal of unreadability, it seemed time to revisit the optimistic side of the question…

- Here we approach, I tell my teacher, a considerable objection that I want to put to you…Obscurity!

- It is, indeed, equally dangerous, he answers me, whether obscurity derives from the deficiencies of the reader, or those of the poet… but to elude the task altogether would be cheating.

--Stéphane Mallarmé, "An Interview with Jules Huret," 1891

SLSA 2016 – Creating Accounts of Creative Bodies: the Narrative Work of Fertility

updated: 
Sunday, May 1, 2016 - 9:57pm
Society for Literature, Science, and the Arts (SLSA)

Babies perform a lot of narrative work. George Eliot's Middlemarch narrator playfully quips that "where there was a baby, things were right enough," and that "error, in general, was a mere lack of that central poising force," and this is often as true for narratives themselves as for the characters therein. Babies often serve as forces of disruption or normatization in literary texts, and this panel seeks to explore the narrative work that the (pro)creative and (pro)created bodies of mothers and babies perform. This panel seeks to situate the creative work of female reproduction in the context of its narrative creation, taking seriously the textual creation and performance of fertility in literary texts.

Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA)

This panel invites examinations and analysis of poetic form and content beyond the page: interactive constructions, poetry postcards, accordion/folded page books, tarot pack books, diaorama/shadow box poem, and more: all these re-form both the poem and the reader. We ask, "is form never more than an extension of content"? - See more at: http://www.pamla.org/2016/topics/beyond-spine-experimental-poetics-and-f...

Proposals attending to the conference theme "Archives, Libraries, Properties" are especially welcome.
