Many scholars who research and write papers for conferences also write poetry. Perhaps those poems are jotted on note pads, in the margins of your papers or in dedicated personal journals.  This session is seeking those scholars whose poetry often remains unpublished due to the heavier responsibility of publishing scholarly journal articles, monographs and genre-specific books which demand much time in between teaching, and perhaps, administrating at the university. Even though those scholarly efforts may yield more rewards, such as job retention and hopefully, job promotions; personal poetry, intermittently created, yields a satisfying venue for emotional issues and satisfying creativity.

Tradition and Innovation in Ezra Pound's Modernist Circle

updated: 
Friday, July 31, 2020 - 12:46pm
Jeff Grieneisen / Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 28, 2020

Ezra Pound’s role in modernism is undeniable, but his connections to Philadelphia may be less obvious and are worthy of exploration. He spent his formative years in this “birthplace of America,” where his father worked at the U.S. Mint. Among the many artists he befriended in Philadelphia were fellow poets who would become modernists: Hilda Doolittle (H.D.), Marianne Moore, and William Carlos Williams. Pound’s relationship with Philadelphia institution University of Pennsylvania is a tumultuous one. Having earned his master’s degree, he was “pushed out” of the program, and his efforts to get a PhD were denied by the university, including many recent efforts to award him a posthumous PhD. This remains another source of controversy in Pound studies.

When Germans and Americans move back and forth between the continents, they participate in an important cross pollination influencing both the intellectual and artistic worlds of both cultures. Whether they came with the waves of people that journeyed westward in the wake of the German Revolution of 1848, or because of wars and economic needs, or from diaspora across Europe they brought new ideas and artistry to America. During the maturation, commercial expansion and the technological explosion of the new world in the twentieth century, programs fostering education like the Fulbright exchange, sent millions of Americans back to Germany to study, teach, report, work and to live permanently.

Futures of Queer Reproduction (NEMLA, March 2021)

Northeast MLA

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

As José Esteban Muñoz has argued, the antirelational or antisocial thesis—the polemic against reproduction, the insistence that the figure of the child serves only to promise a collective future that thwarts and forecloses anything not assimilable to heteronormativity—fails to account for modes of futurity that are already legible now, particularly in aesthetic objects that serve as “maps” of concrete utopian thinking. Such maps, historically relational and collectively forged, open spaces for thinking about a future that is not yet here—but also help us locate elements of the utopian that are already present.

The last two decades have witnessed an explosion of literary works that adapt, challenge and elaborate the narrative and lyrical traditions of the Spanish-speaking world. From the neorrural novel of Spain to the Mexican ‘Generación del Crack’, from the neoclassical poetry of Aurora Luque and Juan Antonio González Iglesias to the experimental artifacts of Agustín Fernández Mallo or Pablo Katchadjian, novelists and poets in Spain and Latin America have reimagined their literary traditions and adapted them to the new realities of the 21st century.

Queer 19th-century Desire in the City of Brotherly and Sisterly Love

updated: 
Monday, June 22, 2020 - 2:38pm
NeMLA 2021, Philadelphia, PA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 30, 2020

In 1860, Walt Whitman, begins his poem “I Dreamed in a Dream” with this vision of an idyllic city: “I saw a city invincible to the attacks of the whole of the rest of the earth; I dream’d that was the new City of Friends; Nothing was greater there than the quality of robust love— it led the rest” (1-5). Though presented as a utopian city formed in a dream, the City of Friends, in the 19th century, was a slogan used to refer to Philadelphia. The allusion to friends references the foundation of Philly by William Penn, a Quaker. It is this Quaker heritage that Whitman connects to his vision of Comradeship in which men of different backgrounds and cultures will lovingly embrace one another.

Wednesday, September 30, 2020

While it is too soon to fully assess the extent to which the COVID-19 pandemic will stand as a watershed in global human life, creative writers as canaries in the cultural coalmine will be among the first to try to render it comprehensible and are already responding to the seismic shifts. The unexpected changes the pandemic has created have altered all of the processes that sustain human life, the social practices and interactions that are the mainstay of poetry, fiction, and drama, perhaps permanently. Enforced social isolation has caused people from all strata of society to contemplate what it means to be engaged in human culture while at the same time facing the possibility of sudden and random mortality, even mass extinction.

In an age of Twitter rants, allegations of fake news, and increasingly bitter partisan divides, what happens to the novel or poem? Does literary material have to engage with the political? And if it doesn’t, must the political be read between its lines? What are the possibilities for creative work in an era that is increasingly in a state of emergency? This panel asks creative writers to consider the question of political and literary engagement in our political age. Writers of all modalities and genres are encouraged to explore these questions in the context of their own work. This panel asks creative writers to consider the question of a political literary engagement in our political age. Writers of all modalities and genres are welcome.

Montage of a Dream Deferred: Projecting Langston Hughes's Vision During Covid-19: A Special Issue of The Langston Hughes Review

The Langston Hughes Review
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, July 15, 2020

Recently, in an epic #Verzuz battle organized by producer Swizz Beatz and rapper-producer Timbaland, the Grammy-Award winning singers Erykah Badu and Jill Scott appeared on Instagram live. Therein Scott invoked Langston Hughes as an inspirational artist, pointing to the poet’s continued popularity in the twenty-first century, especially during #Covid19. For countless African Americans, the death tolls from the virus, inadequate health care, unemployment, and white supremacist bigotry epitomize Hughes’s notion of the dream deferred. Video footage released May 26, 2020, showed officer Derek Chauvin of the Minneapolis Police Department kneeling on Floyd’s neck for at least seven minutes in broad daylight. Floyd died afterward.
