Conferences

I’m very excited to be heading to this cool looking conference at Concordia this afternoon–Approaching the Poetry Series: Using Literary Recordings as Scholars and Digital Designers. The digital/technical side of things will be brand new to me, and the range of theoretical approaches to studying poetry readings (and reading series) as literary artifacts is right up my current research alley. It’s going to be great. There’s a poetry reading on the Friday as well (Gregory Betts, Lee Hannigan, Daniel Snelson, Derek Beaulieu, Deanna Fong, Jeff Derksen, Karis Shearer and Michael Nardone). Check out the cool poster below, as well as the papers and abstracts at the SpokenWeb site here. I’m excited to see where SpokenWeb goes. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed exploring their digital archive preparing for this conference.

Whatever Else: An Irving Layton Symposium is nearly here as well. May 3-5. Things are shaping us nicely. The lineup of papers is phenomenal, an exciting poetry reading is taking shape for the Saturday night, and our preparations are starting to look a bit more concrete. You can see the program and read abstracts here.
