The University of St. Thomas English and Art History graduate programs will hold an interdisciplinary conference on Friday, April 25, 2014.

While papers addressing any aspect of literature, visual arts, and culture will be considered, the graduate program particularly welcomes proposals for papers exploring the topic of Visualizing the Past/Imagining the Future.

How do conceptions of the past or future inform and/or constrain the process of literary or artistic production?

How have artists and writers imagined the future in utopian or dystopian terms?

In what ways have literary or historical eras (e.g., the "dark ages" or Romanticism) been idealized or demonized by writers or artists of later eras?

Legal Bodies: Corpus / Persona / Communitas (15-16-17 May 2014)

updated: 
Thursday, December 19, 2013 - 8:59am
Leiden University

On May 15-16-17 2014, LUCAS (the Leiden University Centre for the Arts in Society) will host a three-day conference on the various ways in which literary and artistic texts have represented, interrogated or challenged juridical notions of 'personhood'. The guiding assumption behind our conference is that 'personhood' is not a (biologically) given, stable property of human beings (which precedes their interaction with the law), but that 'personhood' is assigned to selected (and historically varying) 'bodies' by discursive regimes, such as those of law, medicine, politics, religion, and education.

"Teaching Poe's Poetry" (ALA in Washington, D.C., May 22-15, 2014)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 10:38pm
Poe Studies Association

For Emerson, Poe the poet was a "jingle man," a writer of lachrymose lyrics, but Baudelaire and the Symbolists venerated Poe, whom they considered a model of poetic excellence. Eliciting divergent responses during the nineteenth century, Poe's verse continues to frustrate and to intrigue readers in our time. Such divergences present opportunities for teachers, who can choose from a wide range of approaches as they introduce the poetry of Poe to students. For this panel, which will feature papers about pedagogical matters, the Poe Studies Association solicits proposals for a panel at the 2014 American Literature Association Conference.

Hart Crane: Inheritance and Influence (ALA 2014 Panel)

updated: 
Wednesday, December 18, 2013 - 9:28pm
David Hester / College of Charleston

Even as Hart Crane can seem a marginal presence among his peers--a poet of epic ambition in an era of self-conscious fragmentation, a romantic alongside the modernists, a queer voice alongside a more conservative criticism--he is also a poet who deliberately aligned himself with past literary traditions and poets, and a poet who has, in turn, been an important influence on subsequent poets and artists. This panel seeks proposals from critics and poets whose work engages any aspect of Crane's inheritance or influence. Please send 250-word proposals by January 20th to dlhester@g.cofc.edu.

Preference will be given to proposals charting out new directions in Crane scholarship. Possible topics include reevaluations of Crane's work in relation to sexuality, race, popular culture, form and (new) formalism, or the transnational; reconsiderations of Crane alongside his modernist peers; and reflections on Crane's critical reception and possible critical futures.

2014 UNT Critical Voices Conference—March 21, 2014 (Submission Deadline: March 1, 2014)

"From here, West is East": Trans-Pacific Canadian Literature, 24-26 May 2014

"From here, West is East”: Trans-Pacific Canadian Literature session, ACQL/ALCQ Conference, 24-26 May 2014, Brock University, St Catharines, Ontario, Canada, Organizer: Joanne Leow

Vancouver poet Sachiko Murakami's poem "Tower" in her 2011 collection of poetry _Rebuild_ cannily inverts the Eurocentric geographical compass that defines Canada's relationship with Europe and Asia. By subverting the directionality of our gaze both West and East, the poem also recalls the history of trans-Pacific flows of immigrants, culture and capital that has shown no signs of abating. What happens when we think of West as East in a critically productive form of disorientation? How are Canada's trans-pacific borders explored and redefined through literary texts whether novels, short stories, poetry, or film? What kinds of trajectories and inventories are traced at these coastal margins and beyond?
