Ever since the early 1960s, Bob Dylan has never ceased to evolve. His creativity remains as powerful as ever in the twenty-first century. Hence the international symposium “Things have changed: Twenty-First-Century Dylan” will focus primarily on contemporary Dylan.
The aim of the conference is to provide a forum for exchanging ideas and
sharing the findings of research related to the city—as a place and space—which is the scene of everyday life, the silent witness of alienation and tragedy, the goal of many physical and spiritual journeys, and the object of fantastic speculation.
AISNA GRADUATE FORUM 2018
1st AISNA Graduate Forum Conference
September 28, 2018
Centro Studi Americani
keynote speaker: Jeffrey C. Stewart.
For almost two centuries, poets and critics, from Algernon Swinburne to Hart Crane, Allen Ginsberg, and Harold Bloom, have recognized William Blake and Walt Whitman as kindred poets and visionaries, fellow mystics, allied writers in the prophetic tradition. […] However, only a few essays on Blake and Whitman have been published over the past 30 years. This collection of essays aims to advance inquiry into Blake and Whitman’s likenesses beyond impressionism and beyond the terms—prophecy, mysticism, and (to a lesser extent) influence– that have typically framed the rare critical considerations of the two poets in tandem.
The 2018 conference theme, “Once Upon a Time in Louisiana,” is dedicated to exploring Louisiana’s long and continued relationship with narrative. Presentation proposals on any aspect of Louisiana narratives, as well as creative texts and performances by, about, and/or for Louisiana and Louisianans, are sought for this year’s conference.
