Call for Papers:
Locating “Poetry of Resistance”: Poetry and the Politics of Space
Northeast Modern Language Association Convention (4/12-15/18)
This panel examines the relationship between the contemporary poetry community’s call for “poetry of resistance” and the particular locations or spaces that such poems represent. Papers may examine how particular locations or spaces define the language of resistance or how poetic resistance defines particular locations or spaces. How is resistance defined locally, globally, geographically, environmentally, or personally in poetry? And how does poetry define the relationship between resistance and location?
