"Robinson Jeffers and the Poetry of California"
The 8th Annual Robinson Jeffers Association Conference
May 25-26, Stanford University
The Association welcomes proposals on Jeffers’s work in relation to any aspect of the poetry of California, broadly defined. We encourage revaluations of Jeffers’s work in light of the new edition of the Collected Poetry from Stanford University Press; meditations on California poetics generally; discussion of art forms other than poetry in California, and Jeffers’s impact on them; considerations of regionalism vs. national literary culture; forthright evaluations of the merit of poetry in California, and of California poets past and present; analysis of historical, cultural, political, aesthetic, and social issues surrounding California poetry; and more. Bring it on.
Proposals should be relatively brief and must be postmarked by Saturday, March 30. The conference has a number of different formats and includes opportunities for standard academic talks (15-20 mins.), longer plenary presentations (30-45 mins.,), responses to longer talks (5-10 mins.), panel chairs, participation in discussion sections, and poetry readings (20-30 mins.).
Please address all queries and paper proposals directly to the address below.
Proposals may also be submitted online to the email address below.
