We are most interested in thinking about how ruins might be figured not only as the ending of something, but also as the beginning of something else.

And on the Pedestal, these words appear: My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings; Look on my Works ye Mighty and despair! Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away.

Diviners and Doomsdayers: The Poet as Prophet

Prophecy and poetry share a long history in American literature. Since Emerson argued for poets as America’s sacred seers, the term “prophet” has been variously applied in criticism of American poetry, to suggest poets who have startling foresight (for example, Robinson Jeffers or W.S. Merwin); to highlight social and political investments (in Muriel Rukeyser or Adrienne Rich); to align human utterances with divinely inspired truths (in Allen Ginsberg or Nathaniel Mackey); or to suggest a trans-historical lineage of prophet-poets, from Jeremiah to Blake to Whitman and beyond.

CALL FOR PAPERS | CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

 

Despite our constant unraveling, humans are bound to each other and are continually finding ways of becoming entangled with one another. Our platonic, romantic, and paternal bonds of love cause us to belong to each other. This fierce intimacy has the potential to stretch physical, emotional, and spiritual boundaries.

 

How do humans currently become entangled with each other? How do we love each other? Hate each other? Cooperate with one another? What connections are condemned and stigmatized? Should they be? How do our shared experiences enhance our individual perceptions?

Shaping Identity in Ezra Pound's Poetry

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 11:43am
Jeff Grieneisen / Northeast Modern Language Association
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel explores the relationship between Ezra Pound's poetry and the cultures and people—real, created, and re-created—that he uses to inhabit that poetry. From his early work, such as we find in A Lume Spento and Personae, and the culmination of his life's work in The Cantos, Pound shapes and shares many identities with the ultimate goal of pursuing truth and beauty. Panel papers might also explore Pound's use of numerous foreign languages in shaping and sharing these identities.

Truth-Telling: Experimental Forms in Essay and Poetry, a Reading & Discussion

updated: 
Monday, September 23, 2019 - 11:42am

deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

What does it mean to tell the truth? Are we obligated to inform, or reveal with specificity? What approaches do creative writers apply in disclosing the personal? Does experimentation hide or reveal the truth? Our creative essays and poetry engage with inherent obstacles of truth in life writing. Following a reading of our essays and poetry, we will invite conversation on the ways in which experimental literary forms test the boundaries of truth-telling and subjectivity, and complicate the defining and teaching of genres.

Aristotle à rebours:

Unconventional Aristotelianism in Medieval Italy and Beyond

Sponsored by Italians & Italianists at Kalamazoo

ICMS Kalamazoo 2020, May 7-10


 

Aristotle’s transformation from heretical source to intellectual authority testifies to the fact that his scholastic assimilation was uneven and often controversial, and it is the aim of this panel to explore those figures whose Aristotelianism has been perceived, by either their contemporaries or their scholars, as historically peculiar or unorthodox.

Poetry and Identity: Shaping and Sharing the Trauma of Displacement (NeMLA 2020 - Panel)

updated: 
Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - 5:13pm
Lucie HOUDU (for a 2020 NeMLA Panel)
deadline for submissions: 
Monday, September 30, 2019

This panel will broach the topic of shaping a poetic identity through the prism of a traumatic experience of displacement. How does the poet present a disturbing personal history on the page? Coming from one place and being forcibly moved to another also involves confronting a different language and culture: how is such an occurrence translated to the page? Is poetry a space where cultures and languages clash with one another, or does the expression effect a reconciliation? How does this potential blend of languages and cultural references (including code-switching and code-mixing) inscribe a troubled identity, trying to reconstitute oneself via a poetic text?

The Lyric Self and Courtly Traditions

updated: 
Sunday, September 15, 2019 - 11:38pm
American Comparative Literature Association ACLA
deadline for submissions: 
Wednesday, September 25, 2019

A new preference for the production and consumption of lyric forms of poetry, over that of more narrative options like the epic, often coincided with a governing body’s establishment of courtly norms and practices. This trend is consistent across a multitude of seemingly disparate cultures. The popularity and refinement of the ghazal during the Ghaznavid dynasty and the sonnet at the Elizabethan court are just two examples of similar formal developments arising within different cultural contexts. Shorter lyrics were often formally rigorous, but also highly customizable, and many of these forms also called for a new emphasis on the construction and expression of self.
