American Documentary Poetics

CFP for American Literature Association (ALA) 28th Annual Conference

May 25-28, 2017, Boston, MA

Call for papers on any topic related to American docupoetics/investigative poetics. Part documentary, part imagination, investigative poetry incorporates a variety of data and reportage into the poem—including photos and images, testimonials, interviews, facts and figures—in order to explore the historical and political conditions of contemporary culture.

Submit 250 to 500-word abstracts and a CV, by January 15, 2017, to Tana Jean Welch, Florida State University, at tana.welch@med.fsu.edu
