Call for Papers for
A Conference on Poetries of the 1940s,
American and International

Orono, Maine
June 2327, 2004

The National Poetry Foundation invites paper and panel proposals for a conference on the poetries of the 1940s, both American and international. Proposals are welcome on writers of previous generations whose literary careers extended into--and
sometimes passed through revolutionary transformations during--the 1940s. Papers are also invited on the work of poets whose careers began in or were decisively shaped by the 1940s. We also encourage papers on poets of the 1940s generation from
other language communities or regions of the world. Papers may also explore historical, cultural, and literary movements of the 1940s.

Confirmed presenters as of 9/11/03 include Robert Creeley, Marjorie Perloff, Jackson Mac Low, Alan Filreis, Ruth Stone, Harvey Shapiro, and Harryette Mullen.

Send a proposed title and a one-page abstract, via regular mail or e-mail, to
Burton Hatlen, Director
National Poetry Foundation
Room 304, 5752 Neville Hall
