CFP: Poetry and Urban Transformation (ACLA 2019 - Georgetown, March 7-10)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 5, 2018 - 10:41am

How does poetry model, resist and press against the material transformation of cities and urban regions? How do poems engage with urban change as it shapes the movement of people, commodities, and ideas, and as it curates affective experience and interior lives?

At a time when urban areas house the majority of the global population, and in which their continued uneven (re)development and decay perpetuates the stratification of access to material, social and economic resources, we are interested in how poetry across historical periods and geographies responds to, synthesizes, and participates in the transformation of the urban built environment.

CFP:

If literary scholars have traditionally wielded theory, not least the legacies of ideology critique, to relate cultural production to transformations in the capitalist lifeworld, historians have long avoided political economy as a core analytic in favor of concepts like “markets” and “societies.” Since the 2008 financial crisis, historians have drawn on previous work in the areas of social, economic, business, legal, and labor history, to develop a new subfield, “history of capitalism.”

Whitman 200: An International Conference

University of Bolton, UK, 23-24 May, 2019.

In commemoration of poet Walt Whitman’s 200th birthday, and to celebrate Bolton as a centre of interest for Whitman scholars and readers, this two-day conference will explore new critical ways of thinking about Whitman. Its vision is to provide contexts and connections developing from Whitman’s influence and ideas in the nineteenth century through to the modern era – particularly as they relate to ideas of community and identity.

To Render Visible: Ekphrastic Mirrors in American Literature

Wednesday, August 22, 2018 - 9:10am
NeMLA
deadline for submissions: 
Sunday, September 30, 2018

In Ancient rhetorical theory, ekphrasis refers to the use of language to make an audience imagine a scene. However, the deeper function of ekphrasis, implicit in its descriptive use, is its rhetorical ability to call attention to features of a subject that may be invisible to the physical sense of sight—thus using the visible as a means of subtly exposing or revealing the invisible. The NeMLA session, “To Render Visible: Ekphrastic Mirrors in American Literature,” invites papers that explore how the chiasmic reflections of an ekphrasis reveal the interior subjectivity, ideology and the desire of its author.Please submit proposals to the official NeMLA website no later than 09/30/2018.
