“Human and Non-Human Animals in 19th century English Literature.”

According to John Berger in his famous essay, “Why Look at Animals?” (1977), there was a fundamental shift in the ways in which Europeans imagined and interacted with non-human animals (domesticated and wild) in the 19th century. The nature of this shift, Berger argues, was a symptomatic consequence of the social, cultural, and demographic transformations brought about by industrialization, urbanization, and capitalism.

Taking into account the presidential theme for MMLA, 2022--“Post-Now”--, it is important to foreground the constituency of 'now', and what its discursive urgency means for this panel. While 'now' can be ontologically considered as the transient nature of the present moment in time, which is relative in nature (Einstein 14), its association to time can also be extended to understand the persistence of circumstances and ideas as situated in the present age, or the contemporary times (Dubreuil 44). Laurent Dubreuil links literature to temporality, mentioning how “literature does not exist before but rather after itself: we reconstruct and designate it without exhausting its signification” (Dubreuil 45).

The Creative Writing II: Poetry permanent section of the Midwest Modern Language Association seeks creative, critical, and hybrid proposals that connect to this year’s convention theme of “Post-Now.” We are particularly interested in presentations from poets and poet-scholars who engage with future-oriented poetics and praxis. Questions to consider include: How is (your) poetry and poetic practice positioned within the (ecological, technological, political, intersectional) contemporary momentum of the twenty-first century? How does poetry engage with and/or towards the future while also negotiating past and present? What poetic possibilities lie ahead, and what cannot be left behind?

Talking Heads have proved to be one of the most influential of any of the groups associated with the punk and new
wave scene that flourished in New York in the mid-1970s. They released a number of epoch-defining albums (Talking
Heads 77, Fear of Music, Remain in Light, Little Creatures); they spawned influential and successful offshoots- David
Byrne’s collaboration with Brian Eno on My Life in the Bush of Ghosts; Tom Tom Club (Tina Weymouth’s and Chris
Frantz’s side project); and their forays into other media (music video; the concert film Stop Making Sense; and the
feature film True Stories) were, for the most part, both critically and commercially successful. After the band’s
