 I am recruiting contributors for a collection of scholarly essays with the working title Starcrossed Century: Astrology in Global Society from World War One to Covid. The book is designed to address the identification of the history of astrology with "premodern" history. The historiography of astrology is very active and intellectually exciting, but it focuses almost entirely on the period before 1800. Yet never have there been more astrological believers and practitioners than today. So far I have committments for two essays, one (by me) on American astrologers and COVID, and one on astrology and identity in the sixties counterculture. I want to avoid too heavy a focus on the Anglophone world (although I would love a serious essay on astrology

Iconography and Iconoclasm in Twentieth Century and Contemporary American Poetry

updated: 
Tuesday, October 26, 2021 - 3:16pm
Southwest Popular / American Culture Association
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, October 28, 2021

From Langston Hughes’ "Goodbye, Christ" to Gertrude Stein’s "If I Told Him, A Completed Portrait of Picasso," Marie Howe’s Magdalene to Sarah Blake’s Mr. West, cultural icons feature prominently across American poetry from the past century to the present. Now that social media affords endless and immediate access to living icons’ homes, bodies, and vulnerabilities (especially during the COVID-19 pandemic), poetic treatments of icons might offer timely and incisive considerations of iconography in popular culture then and now. What makes us identify with, or feel alienated from, an iconic figure? What challenges exist in depicting realistic and relatable icons in a medium necessitating a degree of craft?
