Writing Anew: Critical, Cultural, and Canonical Innovations in Literature
Interpreting the act of writing as one of (re)invention and (re)constitution
equips burgeoning critics and creative writers to engage the written word along the axes of power, politics, and persuasion.
The 2014 UNT Critical Voices Conference, which will take place on March 22, 2014, invites critical and creative pieces that both celebrate
and challenge the canonical, historical, and/or political structures with which authors have interacted for centuries.
Authors may submit an abstract of 200-500 words (for
a piece of literary/cultural criticism) or an excerpt (for a creative piece to UNTCriticalVoices@gmail.com
We encourage authors to submit individual paper proposals as well as proposals for panels of three related presentations.
The deadline for submissions is March 1, 2014.
The conference committee will notify applicants
by March 5, 2014. Authors accepted to the conference
will receive further information about payment and travel arrangements. Participants must pay a $15 registration fee (early registration) or a
$20 registration fee at the conference.
