Also, don’t miss our panel, Disciplinary Poetics: Room 210B, Henry B. González Convention Center, Meeting Room Level, Friday, March 6, 10:35-11:50. Moderated by Patrick Durgin, with papers by Tyrone Williams, Jennifer Nelson, Devin King, and Marty Larson-Xu.
This critical panel examines a few ways poetry intervenes and enhances—provides alternative models of research to—disciplines that constitute literature’s “outside.” This is a metacorrective to the once astounding but now flaccid notions of interdisciplinarity and genre hybridity. How do the disciplinary logics of biology, information science, philosophy, political economy, anthropology, history, geography, journalism, classics, visual arts, etc. react to a poetic working over?
We are also co-hosting a big off-site reading.
