Robinson Jeffers and the Poetry of the West, Feb 12 -14, 2010

updated: 
Wednesday, May 27, 2009 - 4:55pm
Robinson Jeffers Association

Many critics have described Robinson Jeffers as the greatest poet of the American West. Whatever one's response to such a claim may be, the answer may ultimately be less interesting than the underlying assumption that makes the claim possible in the first place: that there is such a thing as poetry of the West. Defining such a genre is not a simple matter. If it does exist, who is part of it? Poets who were raised in the west but left (Robert Frost)? Poets who moved to the west only well on in life (Czeslaw Milosz, W. S. Merwin)? Poets who address it thematically but never lived in the west (Longfellow, in "The Cross of Snow")? Poets who lived in the west but do not address typical western themes (Yvor Winters, Charles Bukowski)?

CFP: The Changing Face of the Suburb in Recent American Fiction and Film (NeMLA 4/7-4/11, 2010; due 9/30/09)

updated: 
Wednesday, May 27, 2009 - 12:25pm
Northeast Modern Language Association, 41st Anniversary Conference, Montreal

This panel seeks to investigate the way that suburban novels and films represent, critique, and construct notions of community in the context of a suburban landscape in flux: more immigrants now live in the suburbs than in the cities. Accompanying this increased diversity are new problems, including desperate need for housing, healthcare, and public transportation at a time when infrastructure is decaying and the economy has collapsed. How have recent novels and films reflected and negotiated these changes? Please submit 250-word abstracts to Kathy Knapp at kathy.knapp@uconn.edu

Deadline: September 30, 2009

Please include with your abstract:

Gender, Nature and Culture (May 20-22, 2010)

updated: 
Wednesday, May 27, 2009 - 6:40am
The 4th Christina Conference on Gender Studies (University of Helsinki, Finland)

The 4th Christina conference explores the complex connections among gender, nature and culture. Recent research has increasingly viewed nature and culture as inherently entangled and inseparable, suggesting that nature is often understood through discourses of gender and, conversely, that gender is made sense of through historically contingent assumptions about nature. Building on this growing body of scholarship, the conference asks how this mutual intertwining of nature, culture and gender has been theorized, represented and experienced in the past as well as the present. The conference aims to be a meeting point for researchers from different disciplines.
