Iranian Voices Across the Globe

Friday, September 24, 2010 - 2:45am
Sanaz Fotouhi, University of New South Wales

This collection of scholarly essays for an edited volume aims to explore the writings of the Iranian diaspora, particularly outside of the North American context. While in recent years, due the rising number of books in English, there have been a few studies focusing on Iranian writing emerging from America in English, far less scholarship has been dedicated to the study of Iranian writing across the globe and in other languages. This collection, therefore, focuses on Iranian fiction or autobiographical writings across the globe and various languages.

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.
