Conceptual Poetry and its Others
with keynote speaker

May 29-31, 2008

KEYNOTE ADDRESS BY MARJORIE PERLOFF


WITH FEATURED ARTISTS
CAROLINE BERGVALL, CHARLES BERNSTEIN, CHRISTIAN BÖK, CRAIG DWORKIN, KENNETH GOLDSMITH, TRACIE MORRIS, COLE SWENSEN

The forthcoming publication of Craig Dworkin and Kenneth Goldsmith’s Anthology of Conceptual Poetry (based on the online Ubuweb Anthology of Conceptual Writing) is only one sign of the recent interest in the “tensions between materiality and concept” (Dworkin), in a “new new formalism,” based on constraints, both the Oulipo and Cagean variants, on citationality and found text, on sound play, and visual device. Is such “non-expressivist” poetry too extreme? Conceptual Poetry and Its Others brings together a variety of leading poets to debate the issue.

ROUNDTABLE REPSONDENTS
Charles Alexander, CHAX Press, Tucson; Laynie Browne, UA Poetry Center; Graca Capinha, University of Coimbra, Portugal; Barbara Cole, SUNY, Buffalo; Wystan Curnow, University of Auckland, New Zealand; Stephen Fredman, Notre Dame; Jesper Olsson, OEI Magazine, Sweden; Vanessa Place, Les Figues Press, Los Angeles; Brian Reed, University of Washington, Seattle; Linda Reinfeld, Rochester Intstitute of Techonology; Marie Smart, University of Southern California; Jonathan Stalling, University of Oklahoma

VISPO
What would a Conceptual Poetry Symposium be without a nod to Vispo – the visual poetry movement that seems to be exponentially expanding its definition by constantly incorporating new, or if not new, at least more types of media, including digital, video, film, sculpture, typography, theater and book/e-zine arts? Some exciting work will be on display at the Poetry Center during the symposium including, including works by Peter Ciccariello, Julia Willms, and Turner Davis. Find out more here.
