The Paradox of Emotion in Modern Poetry (MLA 2024)
How does modern poetry enact a paradox of emotion? This MLA 2024 special session invites proposals exploring ambivalence, co-existence or contradiction of emotive states in modern/late modern/postmodern poetics. Broader interpretations of the theme are certainly welcome. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Emotional valences
- Embodied knowledge
- Phenomenology of emotions
Kindly submit your abstract (250-350 words) as well as a short bio by Monday, March 20th to:
