CFP for NeMLA 2017 Annual Convention in Baltimore, MD. http://www.buffalo.edu/nemla/convention.html

Students in creative writing workshops often lack reading experience and knowledge, but demonstrate awareness and analysis of film and television. Graphic literature can be used to transition from the terminology and rhetorical understanding they possess to the writing and feedback skills the workshop demands. This roundtable seeks to present and discuss both recommended texts and strategies to engage students and encourage their creative writing. Theoretical and practical approaches to this method are welcome.

2017 NeMLA Annual Convention
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, September 30, 2016

For a long time now, Canadian poets (most notably bpNichol, but there are many others) have been credited with making significant initiatory experiments in the fields we now call electronic literature and digital poetics, but there has been relatively little work done examining what precisely constitutes a Canadian digital poetics, what kinds of writing constitute the genre, and what new reading practices are invited by these new projects in digital poetics. This panel looks at the emerging field of Canadian digital poetics and asks two primary questions: what is the role of a national literature in the increasingly boundary-less world of electronic literature? and, how do Canadian digital poetics change the way that we read and engage with these texts?

(Submissions should not focus on “The Wreck of the Deutschland.”) Contributions should account for the shifting critical receptions of the texts since their publication and suggest new directions for Hopkins scholarship. Contributors might consider issues such as the politicization of Hopkins, Hopkins’s changing audience, appropriations of Hopkins, or Hopkins inside and outside of the academy.
