The New York School Society will sponsor a session on "New Work on Kenneth Koch" at the American Literature Association's 2011 Annual Conference. The publication in 2007 of both The Collected Poems of Kenneth Koch and the Library of America Selected Poems is only the most notable indication of recent interest in Koch's work. We invite proposals on any aspect of Koch's poetry, prose, drama, teaching, collaborations, or influence on contemporary poetry. Please send proposals or abstracts (up to 250 words), along with a brief biography or curriculum vitae, to Ben Lee (blee15@utk.edu). Submissions must be received by January 21, 2011.
