E. E. Cummings: Nation, Race, and Popular Modernism (9/20/09; Louisville, 2/18/10-2/20/10)

E. E. Cummings Society

The E. E. Cummings Society and the Society's journal, Spring, invite abstracts for 20- minute papers for the 38th annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture since 1900, February 18-20, 2010, at the University of Louisville. Considering the range of Cummings' modernist experiments and re-imaginings of genre through language, typography, and many art forms (from the lyric to prose non/fiction, to stage plays, and to the visual arts), along with his transgressions of formal boundaries (including metrics and rhyme), we invite papers that examine Cummings' multi-faceted engagement with the modern, in particular, issues of nation, race, and war, as well as his exploration of the popular vernacular.

A MICHAEL JACKSON READER Essays on Popular Music, Sexuality, And Culture

Christopher R. Smit, Ph.D.

Throughout his 40 year career, Michael Jackson intrigued and captivated public imagination through music ingenuity, sexual and racial spectacle, savvy publicity stunts, odd private (yet always public) behaviors, and a seemingly apolitical (yet always political) offering of popular art. Since the age of ten, Jackson was a consistent player on the public stage โ€“ countless public appearances, both designed and serendipitous, no doubt shaped the consciousness of this performer. The evidence we have of this shaping is seen in the artifacts he has left behind: music, interviews, books written by him, about him, a number of commercial products including dolls, buttons, posters, and photographs, videos, movies.
