CFP ASLE 2017: (June 20-24 2017, Detroit): “The Lower Senses and the Arts of Resistance”
We’re seeking proposals for 15-minute papers for a panel at the 2017 ASLE conference in Detroit (June 20-24, 2017). In keeping with the conference theme of “Rust/Resistance: Works of Recovery,” we aim to explore how environmental artworks (including literature) leverage bodily senses to develop projects of recovery or resistance.
The Children’s Literature Society of the American Literature Association seeks abstracts for papers to be presented at the 28th Annual Conference of the American Literature Association in May 25-28, 2017 discussing any aspect of the audiences for children’s poetry. Poetry is the genre that has traditionally blurred the distinction between child and adult audiences. Many acclaimed poets for adults also write for young audiences, and young people perform poetry written for adult audiences, often responding to those poems by creating and performing poems of their own.
