begins in flux, in the "peculiar combination of the understood and
nonunderstood."

(of up to 6000 works), poetry (3-5 poems) and artwork.

Speaking in Borrowed Tongues: An Investigation of Appropriative Literature

Throughout the twentieth century and beyond, there has been a rich and
lively tradition of appropriative aesthetics, from the Surrealists to Pop
Art, hip-hop to contemporary mash-up artists. In the literary realm, this
mode of expression has taken forms as diverse as the cut-ups of Tristan
Tzara, the New York School poetics of John Ashbery and Ted Berrigan and
Kevin Young's Basquiat tribute-in-verse, To Repel Ghosts (the Remix), as
well as prose experimentations from William S. Burroughs to Jonathan Lethem.

“The Answering Word”: Poetry and Bakhtinian Theory
CFP for NEMLA 2008, Buffalo, NY, April 10-13, 2008
Scholars have struggled with Mikhail Bakhtin’s characterization of poetry
as essentially non-dialogic or resistant to “novelization” and have offered
several compelling models for how we may adapt or reread Bakhtin’s genre
theory. But in practice that theory has been applied most frequently to
his favored genre, the novel. If we take as our premise that dialogism, as
Bakhtin understands it, is possible in poetry, what does it look like? How
should it be read? How does dialogism manifest in poetic forms? This
panel seeks papers that avoid shallowly appropriated Bakhtinian terms.

We are also interested in methods of transcription that render speech on the page. Possible topics
include: Wittgenstein’s Cambridge lectures; Warhol’s “marriage” to his tape-recorder; David Antin’s
talk-poems; Kenneth Goldsmith’s transcribed projects; Native American and other culturally distant
oral poetries. When possible, we encourage participants to present audio recordings.

What Work Is, Or Was: Twentieth Century Poetry of Work Much of the poetry
of the last 100 years or so has celebrated or taken up images of farm- and
factory-labor, even while actual examples of this kind of labor grow
increasingly scarce, or less visible, in the world around us. This panel
will explore the ways in which poets such as Robert Frost and Carl
Sandburg, historically, as well as poets such as Seamus Heaney and Philip
Levine, more recently, have represented and continue to represent work in
their poems. Send proposals by e-mail to Andrew Mulvania at

The Fiction of Colum McCann - Essay Collection

Deadline for Submissions - 30 June 2008

 

Submissions are invited for an edited collection of essays on the Irish writer Colum McCann. McCann has long been touted as one of the leading Irish writers of his generation and this collection seeks to address the relative, and surprising, absence of any critical engagement with McCann's literary fiction. The editors are seeking essays on any and all of McCann's published work in order to reflect the variety and quality of his achievement. This naturally means that a limited number of essays on any one text can be accepted. We are open to discussions of McCann's work on any theme, theoretical prism, or close-reading strategy.
