deadline for submissions: 
Monday, February 28, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

Much of the Western world has a rising problem with white nationalists. These white supremacists often co-opt fields like Classics, medievalism, and Norse mythology to support their racist ideologies—twisting these disciplines and repressing or ignoring evidence for the multicultural and multiracial realities of the ancient and medieval world. In terms of Classics, these distortions and appropriations have been documented by an emerging generation of scholars like Donna Zuckerberg, Dan-el Padilla Peralta, Curtis Dozier, Sarah Bond, and others. Ancient myth, literature, and symbols continue to pervade modern culture.

Evelyn Scott Society -- American Literature Association -- Deadline January 14, 2022

Evelyn Scott Society
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, January 14, 2022

The Evelyn Scott Society invites abstracts of 1-2 pages on the American writer Evelyn Scott (1893-1963).

Papers may focus on any of her works (novels, memoir, poetry, young adult literature), and they may take any contemporary critical approach. We are especially interested in papers that investigate the process of canonicity, the literary networks to which Scott belonged, or the role of disability in her career, but all topics will be considered. Scott participated in various and major literary currents during her writing life, including Imagism, naturalism, and modernism, and she had a wide variety of literary mentors, including Lola Ridge, Theodore Dreiser, Waldo Frank, William Carlos Williams, and Jean Rhys, among others. 

Iconography and Iconoclasm in Twentieth Century and Contemporary American Poetry

updated: 
Tuesday, October 26, 2021 - 3:16pm
Southwest Popular / American Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 28, 2021

From Langston Hughes’ "Goodbye, Christ" to Gertrude Stein’s "If I Told Him, A Completed Portrait of Picasso," Marie Howe’s Magdalene to Sarah Blake’s Mr. West, cultural icons feature prominently across American poetry from the past century to the present. Now that social media affords endless and immediate access to living icons’ homes, bodies, and vulnerabilities (especially during the COVID-19 pandemic), poetic treatments of icons might offer timely and incisive considerations of iconography in popular culture then and now. What makes us identify with, or feel alienated from, an iconic figure? What challenges exist in depicting realistic and relatable icons in a medium necessitating a degree of craft?

International Conference on Poetry Studies: “Poetry Between Creation and Interpretation“

updated: 
Tuesday, October 19, 2021 - 4:07pm
London Centre for Interdisciplinary Research
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, December 15, 2021

Poetry is a constant, being produced by all known civilisations from ancient to modern times. Throughout its extensive history, the individual art of high emotions sublimated into perfect language has approached a vast array of subject matters, including love, war, social issues, the beauty of nature, etc. A particular exercise of the mind and soul, and a unique way of apprehending reality, poetry is a self-sufficient universe that intensifies and enlarges life experience. Pointing to inner knowledge rather than real circumstance, it activates different layers of perception, sweeps away human thoughts, feeds emotions and soothes suffering.

Poetry and the Global Climate Crisis: Creative Approaches to Complex Challenges

Amatoritsro Ede/ Mount Allison University
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, November 15, 2021

Our previous books, Poetry and Pedagogy across the Lifespan (2018) and Poetry and Sustainability in Education (forthcoming 2021/22), explore poetry’s crucial role in educating learners of all age groups to meet the challenges faced as we navigate current and future crises. While both of these volumes provide theoretical approaches and applicable tools and methods for teaching poetry in numerous contexts, the essays are heavily weighted towards European/North American poets and/or Western educational institutions. This new volume seeks to invite perspectives from around the globe, centering on comparativist or non-Western paradigms and practices.

Sandstorm: Journal of Creative Writing, Art, and Photography

updated: 
Wednesday, October 13, 2021 - 2:28pm
University of Texas Permian Basin
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, January 31, 2022

Sandstorm is a peer reviewed arts and literature journal edited by students and faculty at the University of Texas Permian Basin. We publish the best poetry, fiction, art, and photography from around the world and West Texas. The editors look for work with a social consciousness, but as for that, we do not have any bias that leans toward the lyric or narrative impulse, or formal or open--either is acceptable so long as the writer displays a sense of the organic. We also respect the objective correlative, shunning any detached abstraction.

This special issue of Women’s Studies aims to bring together new and exciting scholarship on the work of Eileen Myles.

Anthologies, Zines, and Magazines: The Collaborative Avant-Garde (ACLA 2022)

updated: 
Tuesday, October 5, 2021 - 3:45pm
ACLA 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, October 31, 2021

The avant-garde has often been defined by its asserted antagonism towards existing norms, and, in turn, critiqued for its ultimate co-option or complicity in those norms. Building on this rich tradition of reflection on the significance and role of the avant-garde, this seminar is interested in shifting the focus to its collaborative dimensions: its networks and communities of production and consumption, including editors and publishers, distributors and readers, and literary networks and communities, alongside the more-studied figure of the individual artist/author. Robert Darnton has influentially referred to this as a “communications circuit”; Mark S.

Transition of Romanticism through Ages.

Sunday, October 3, 2021

Romantic Poets have always been viewed as Nature poets. The stereotype of nature, pastoral, or sceneries has been the trademark. But as literature students, we come across the point, is romantic poetry limited to nature, sky, river, and brooks? 

The best part about this small question is the ambiguity of the answer. On the superficial level, romantic poetry and Victorian poetry are confined to nature poetry. But Blake and Wordsworth are not the torchbearers of romanticism. The credit goes to Geoffrey Chaucer, the father of poetry. Chaucer has written The Canterbury tales has elements of romanticism.

Deadline Extended: NeMLA 2022 - Contemporary Poetry and Social Media

updated: 
Monday, October 4, 2021 - 1:43pm
Northeast Modern Language Association 2022
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, September 30, 2021

This roundtable will convene literary and media scholars with poets themselves to explore the present and future of poetic cultures online, both in the U.S. and around the world. Our largest question can be simply put: to what extent have platforms for digital “prosumption” and online networking transformed the social life of contemporary poetry? We understand this inquiry to entail a diverse array of other, finer pointed questions: How does social media now condition the politics of contemporary poetry, where “politics” signifies both the institutional lifeforms of poetry’s production and circulation, and the ostensible public efficacy of poems themselves?
