Charles Olson: Only One Poem (12/1/10; ALA Boston: 5/26-29/2011)

Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 9:46am
Gary Grieve-Carlson / The Charles Olson Society

If you could choose only one poem by Charles Olson--for inclusion in an anthology, or to teach to undergraduates, or for a graduate seminar, or as your personal favorite, or as his very best, or his most significant--which would it be? The Charles Olson Society will sponsor a roundtable discussion at the May 2011 American Literature Association conference in Boston. Six roundtable participants will be invited to offer ten-minute justifications or explications or celebrations of one poem by Charles Olson. Some might argue that Olson's poems don't stand alone as well as, say, Frost's or Stevens's--that Olson needs to be read in bigger chunks.

    War Cinema : Final call for abstracts

    Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 4:31am
    Jura Gentium Cinema

    We are looking for contributions to a special issue, "War Cinema," of JG Cinema, an online journal that deals with film, globalization, and issues of social justice. This issue will deal with war cinema and address question such as the following: how does cinema move between the national and the global in imagining, reflecting, fictionalizing, or inventing life during wartime? How does film confront, evade or displace issues of war and wartime? How can we think about both film and war in a global context? What categories of social cohesion or contestation have emerged from the way cinema has staged wartime?

    Rethinking Baudrillard and Feminist Theory [deadline 11/1/2010] ACLA 2011, Vancouver, 3/31-4/3/2011

    Thursday, September 23, 2010 - 12:42am
    Panel proposal for American Comparative Literature Association annual meeting

    From Jane Gallop's 'French Theory and the Seduction of Feminism', Meaghan Morris' 'Room 101 or A Few Worst Things in The World' to Douglas Kellner's 'Baudrillard's Affront to Feminism,' the French sociologist Jean Baudrillard has been widely condemned in the 80s and 90s as an anti-feminist philosopher. This criticism makes some sense: Baudrillard's major mistake has indeed been his caricaturizing of feminism and feminist theory as mere emancipation or equal rights discourse.
