The Creative Writing II: Poetry section of the Midwest Modern Language Association is accepting proposals for scholarly and literary presentations that examine, complicate, or challenge concepts of poetry as an act of resistance.
We welcome papers, poetry, and digital poetics projects. We are especially interested in critical-creative works that are socially conscious and politically engaged.
Please send a 200-300-word abstract and a brief bio to the section chair, Francesco Levato (firstname.lastname@example.org), by April 15th, 2017. Include in your abstract your name, institutional affiliation, e-mail address and paper title.
