What We Talk About When We Talk About The New York School
The inaugural symposium of the Network for New York School Studies (www.nnyss.org) will feature short talks, close-readings, interdisciplinary discussions, presentations of archival work, joint presentations, work-in-progress, artistic responses, and other conventional or unconventional responses to a variety of New York School poetry, art, and writing. Together, we will explore the place of New York School poetry, both in its emergent moment, and since:
- how did New York School poetry 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?
The event will be informal, inclusive, conversational, interdisciplinary, and intersectional. It will conclude with a poetry reading in the evening (poets TBC).
