New writing from the USA > double bilingual issue of Nioques, fall 2020

Double Change est heureux de vous annoncer la parution d’une anthologie bilingue de “nouvelle poésie des Etats-Unis” que nous avons sélectionnée et traduite pour la revue NIOQUES. Cette sélection de 15 écrivain.e.s est la première d’une série d’anthologies sur les configurations et reconfigurations en cours de la poésie états-unienne dans sa production la plus radicale. Tous les textes sont publiés en traduction et en version originale précédés parfois de textes de position. (voir sommaire et commandes ci-dessous)

“Comment la poésie états-unienne se constitue-t-elle actuellement ? Ce dont on parle est-il encore de la poésie, le terme a-t-il encore un sens ? Si pour le lecteur averti, la poésie des années 1960, 1970, 1980 n’est pas inconnue tant les traductions, les séries de lecture et les publications diverses ont permis de cartographier les grands mouvements structurants du champ poétique à la suite du modernisme et des avant-gardes radicales, et de faire connaître jusqu’aux auteurs qui ne se reconnaissent pas dans ces mouvements, la situation actuelle est plus difficile à entrevoir depuis l’étranger. Le sentiment est celui d’un éclatement dans une diversité de pratiques et d’auteurs individuels. Or, d’une part ce constat reflète l’impression que donne inévitablement le contemporain – le même sentiment apparaît dans l’art – d’autre part, cette impression est un effet rétrospectif de la sensation, souvent illusoire, que le lecteur sait cartographier l’histoire des mouvements qui précèdent, alors qu’ils ont souvent une forme et une unité bien plus instables que ne peut le décrire l’histoire littéraire. Des contre-généalogies sont toujours à proposer.” (extrait de l’introduction au numéro).

Paris 2021: What We Talk About When We Talk About The New York School

The inaugural meeting of the Network for New York School Studies (NNYSS) will be held on Wednesday 23 June 2021 at Université Gustave Eiffel.

The Alice Notley Poets & Critics Symposium will be held on Thursday 24 and Friday 25 June 2021 at Université Gustave Eiffel.

What We Talk About When We Talk About The New York School

The inaugural event of the Network for New York School Studies will feature short papers addressing a variety of aspects of New York School poetry, art, and writing. This event builds on the research network scholars and poets began to form during the illuminating New Work on the New York School symposium and poetry evening held at the University of Birmingham in 2018. We hope it will be the second international meeting of many. We have plans for follow-up events in New York and London in the coming years: watch this space…

Talks, close-readings, interdisciplinary discussions, presentations of archival work, joint presentations, work-in-progress, artistic responses, and other conventional or unconventional responses to the New York School, broadly conceived, will explore the place of New York School poetry, both in its emergent moment, and since:

  • how did New York School poetry and art define itself in its moment?
  • what has it come to mean?
  • who are its artists and poets?
  • what “schools” or movements has it influenced?
  • how did / does it sit within broader New York / American / global writing and culture (including film, music, and art)?
  • what can be said of 3rd and 4th generation New York School writing?
  • what do we talk about, now, when we talk about the New York School?

Talks are expected to be 5-10 minutes in length. Like last time, the event will be informal, inclusive, conversational, interdisciplinary, and intersectional. It will conclude with a poetry reading in the evening (poets TBC).

This event is organized by Rona Cran (University of Birmingham) and Yasmine Shamma (University of Reading) and hosted by Olivier Brossard (Université Gustave Eiffel.)

If you would like to attend, please email nwonthenys@gmail.com.

Further details about the event will follow in due course.

“North American Poetry 2000-2020/1: Poetics, Aesthetics, Politics.” Conference, 14-16 Oct. 2021, Paris. Call for Papers.

“North American Poetry 2000-2020/1: Poetics, Aesthetics, Politics.” 14-16 October 2021, Institut Universitaire de France, Paris.

Organized by Vincent Broqua (Université Paris 8), Olivier Brossard (Université Gustave Eiffel / Institut Universitaire de France), Abigail Lang (Université de Paris).

This is the closing conference of a 5-year research program on the history of US poetry and poetics, in relation with the Poets and Critics program in Paris.

What has been happening on the US poetry scene over the past twenty years? According to what criteria and principles can the field of US poetry be read today? In the 1960s, 70s, and 80s, the scene was structured and defined by poetic, aesthetic, and political tensions: is this still the case today? Or should it be approached differently, by inventing new categories? How is poetry as a genre defined today, and particularly in relation to other genres, and other forms of art? How have the internet and digitization changed the production and distribution of poetry? Who or what authorities legitimize poetry? What relationships do poets develop with institutions? With academia? How is poetry taught? How does poetry redefine the uses of language? How does it incorporate languages other than English? How important is translation in North American poetry today? What privileged connections are being established between the poetry of the United States and the poetries of other countries, especially its North American neighbors (whether the Caribbean, Central America, or Canada)? Are the local and regional poetry scenes as active as in the 1960s? Or do poets tend to associate on a larger scale based on professed identities? How do gender, race, and class call for and enact redefinitions of the poetic spectrum? What are the sociological specificities of North American poetry today? What are the preferred forms for poetics and the critique of poetry? What forms does formal exploration assume?

The ambition of this conference is to explore the field of contemporary poetry in North America over the past twenty years and to identify the relevant notions and concepts that will allow us to map its current configurations. We invite papers which focus on English-language poetry as well as bilingual or multilingual works including English as one of their languages. We welcome submissions that question and recontextualize the term “North American.” We are particularly interested in groups, poets, and works that stem from the modernist and experimental traditions even as they may question and overturn this legacy. We also invite submissions focusing on poems and poetics, groups and distribution networks, the geography and sociology of North American poetry, with the hope that they will contribute to sketching a recent history of North American poetry.  

Proposals for papers (English only) should include a brief abstract (300 words) and a short biographical note and be addressed to northamericanpoetry2020@gmail.com by January 8, 2021.

We welcome short papers addressing any aspect of New York School poetry, art, and writing for the inaugural meeting of the Network for New York School Studies (NNYSS). This event builds on the research network scholars and poets began to form during the illuminating New Work on the New York School symposium and poetry evening held at the University of Birmingham in 2018. We hope it will be the second international meeting of many.

We are particularly interested in presentations that deal with the place of New York School poetry, both in its emergent moment, and since:

  • how did New York School poetry and art define itself in its moment?
  • what has it come to mean?
  • who are its artists and poets?
  • what “schools” or movements has it influenced?
  • how did / does it sit within broader New York / American / global writing and culture (including film, music, and art)?
  • what can be said of 3rd and 4th generation New York School writing?
  • what do we talk about, now, when we talk about the New York School?

Talks are expected to be 5-10 minutes in length. Close-readings, interdisciplinary discussions, presentations of archival work, joint presentations, work-in-progress, artistic responses, and other conventional or unconventional responses to the New York School, broadly conceived, are especially welcome. Like last time, the event will be informal, conversational, interdisciplinary, and intersectional. It will conclude with a poetry reading in the evening (poets TBC).

This event is organized by Rona Cran (University of Birmingham) and Yasmine Shamma (University of Reading) and hosted by Olivier Brossard (Université Paris Est Marne-la-Vallée). It will take place at the Université Paris Est Marne-la-Vallée, on July 1, 2020, and will be followed by a 2-day Poets and Critics symposium focusing on the poetry of Alice Notley.

Paper / presentation proposals are welcome for submission until January 1, 2020. Please submit 200 words along with a 1-2 sentence bio to nwonthenys@gmail.com.

Poetry reading with Marie-Louise Chapelle and Lyn Hejinian

Thursday 13 February, 7pm, 

atelier Michael Woolworth, 

2 rue de la Roquette

Passage du Cheval Blanc, Cour Février, 

75011 Paris M° Bastille. 

How to get there? 

For detailed instructions and directions, click HERE.

Thus far, we have focused on the writer’s own (creative and critical) work on the first day of the P&C symposiums and on broader issues of poetics and practice-based criticism on the second day. But there’s no specific preconceived program for the 2 days of the symposium: as the previous sessions of the program have shown, it seems important to let the conversation take its own course.

Please note that the morning session of the first day is devoted to preparing the conversation with Lyn Hejinian which will take place during the afternoon session and the second day. 

Lyn Hejinian will be joining the group at 2pm on Thursday 13 February.

As usual, we intend to address all aspects of our guest’s work as poet, prose writer, critic, and editor.

Please feel free to make suggestions as to particular books that you would like to discuss during the symposium.

Our Thursday afternoon session with Lyn Hejinian should end by 6 pm, which will leave ample time for everybody to get to the poetry reading.

*

Lyn Hejinian teaches at the University of California, Berkeley, where her academic work is addressed principally to modernist, postmodern, and contemporary poetry and poetics, with a particular interest in avant-garde movements and the social practices they entail. She is the author of over twenty-five volumes of poetry and critical prose, the most recent of which are Positions of the Sun, which was published in January, 2019 by the Brooklyn-based independent feminist literary collective and small press Belladonna, and Tribunal, published by Omnidawn books in the spring of 2019. Translations of her work have been published in Denmark, France, Spain, Japan, Italy, Russia, Sweden, China, Serbia, and Finland. She is the co-director (with Travis Ortiz) of Atelos, a literary project commissioning and publishing cross-genre work by poets, and co-editor (with Jane Gregory and Claire Marie Stancek) of Nion Editions. Other collaborative projects include a composition titled Qúê Trân with music by John Zorn and text by Hejinian; two mixed media books (The Traveler and the Hill and the Hill and The Lake) created with the painter Emilie Clark; the award-winning experimental documentary film Letters Not About Love, directed by Jacki Ochs; the multi-authored 10-volume work The Grand Piano: An Experiment in Collective Autobiography (co-authored with Rae Armantrout, Steve Benson, Carla Harryman, Tom Mandel, Ted Pearson, Bob Perelman, Kit Robinson, Ron Silliman, and Barrett Watten [Detroit: Mode A, 2006-10])
