SMU Symposium on Poetic Form - Southern Methodist University, Dallas, March 18-19, 2024

“Conceptualisms and Erasurisms”

Hosted by the SMU Department of English and co-sponsored by Tel Aviv University’s Department of English and American Studies and the University of Liège’s Center for Interdisciplinary Poetics/UD Traverses, the Symposium on Poetic Form will gather scholars and poets on the SMU campus for two full days to discuss poetic form in practice and theory. 

Proposal submissions for a panel on “conceptualisms and erasurisms” are currently being accepted. We envisage papers based on, but by no means restricted to the following topics (please bear in mind that considerations of poetic form should be central to the discussions) :

found poetry and “unoriginal” writing

effacements, overwritings, coverups, rubouts, blackouts 

authorship, appropriation, plagiarism

homages, defacements and détournements 

flarf, spam poetry

montage, assemblage and collage strategies

cut-up and writing through techniques

poetry in the age of IT and AI

citational and palimpsestic experiments

The SMU Symposium will consist of academic panels, roundtables and poetry readings featuring, among other guests, Jonathan Culler, Jericho Brown, Stephanie Burt, Jahan Ramazani, Evie Shockley, and Virginia Jackson.
