>Subject: CFP: Poetic Form and Disability (3/1/07; MLA '07)
>
>A Special Session for the MLA 2007 conference in Chicago:
>
>Poetic Form and Disability
>
>We welcome proposals that address intersections, opportunities,
>aesthetic challenges and disjunctures between poetics and disability
>studies. The emphasis is on formal approaches: we are less interested
>in poetry that narrates disability, or whose authors happen to be
>disabled, but rather in approaches to poetry and poetry criticism that
>locate disability in, through, and with formal elements. We understand
>disability here as a social formation, playing across embodiment and
>cultural embedment: but what shape this political understanding of
>disability takes might very well be part of the investigation.
>
>The panel will be proposed by the April 1 deadline. MLA announces
>acceptance in mid-summer. Proposed panelists must join MLA by April 7.
