The poetry world is full of fence-building and turf wars. The territory of poetry written since Pound and Eliot tends to be subsumed into categories: modern, postmodern, avant-garde, post-avant-garde, post-post-avant-garde etc. One may not be interested in this mish-mash. However, a common issue is that all poetry since Pound and Eliot is a refusal to acknowledge an overtly oedipal relationship with literary traditions , and a willingness to construct and invent not only new kinds of poetry but new ways of reading.

Fairy Tales Retold due 5/20/13

Christine Garbett

The new millennium has born witness to a multitude of reinventions. Fairy tales also have been recreated in an ever increasing number in recent years. Graphic novels like Grimm Fairy Tales, movies such as Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Beastly, as well as TV shows like Once Upon a Time and Grimm have emerged into popular culture. But why are these creations manifesting themselves now? What makes people crave fairy tales and their "happy" endings in such an increased number today? This will be the first book that will focus on this particular manifestation and its significance in popular culture.

Producing Public Memory: Museums, Memorials, and Archives as Sites for Teaching "Writing"

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - 9:47am
Jane Greer and Laurie Grobman, editors

We invite proposals from teachers, scholars, and researchers in composition, literacy, and rhetorical studies for an edited collection that investigates museums, memorials (permanent, temporary, and spontaneous), and archives as sites of rhetorical education. More particularly, we seeks essays that can help to initiate a new pedagogical phase in the study of public memory by moving beyond rhetorical analyses of museums, memorials, and archives to focus instead on the rich pedagogical and public work that can take place when faculty and students collaborate with museum founders, curators, exhibit designers, archivists, librarians, and others.

UPDATE - The Hockliffe Conference: Conflict in Children's and Young Adult Fiction - 6th September 2013

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - 9:18am
Clare Walsh and Nicola Darwood / University of Bedfordshire

All children face conflict at some time in their lives and this conference explores the way in which this is represented in children's and young adult fiction.

Writers of children's and young adult fiction have never shied away from writing about conflict faced by children whether it's the conflict of a world war in The Silver Sword (1956) or inter-tribal conflict in East Africa in Little Soldier (1999) – both explored at last year's exhibition, 'Once Upon a Wartime', at the Imperial War Museum – generational conflict such as that experienced by Mossy Trotter (1967) or intra-racial conflict faced by the eponymous Rani and Sukh in Bali Rai's book (2004).

Catholic University of Cameroon (CATUC) – Bamenda

The nature of contemporary/global problems necessitates solutions that integrate knowledge and methodologies from distinct disciplines. Interdisciplinary perspectives to the interpretation, teaching and study of literature and language create avenues for critics, teachers and students to synthesize more than one discipline, and enrich the overall educational experience. The pedagogy of traditional methodologies encourages concentration on only one discipline; but the dynamism in the availability and flow of information in the age of technology requires an eclectic approach. While proponents of interdisciplinarity argue that it expands understanding and achievement between all disciplines, critics argue that it leads to integration confusion.
