College Literature Special Issue: “Lively Words: The Politics and Poetics of Experimental Writing,” edited by Tyler Bradway.

Thursday, April 13, 2017 - 10:42am
College Literature

Saturday, July 1, 2017

The title of this special issue draws inspiration from Gertrude Stein’s “lively words,” a style of experimental writing that has been influential for many queer and feminist experimental writers. The essays in this special issue will reconsider the “liveliness” of experimental writing in the twentieth and twenty-first century—not only how experimental poetics disrupt codified practices of reading, but also how experimental writers conceive of the relationship between their words and the social world more broadly.
