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).

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

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

one need never leave the confines
© Martin Spychal, 2019

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.
