We are now forming panels for presentations of American poetry and poetics criticism at our 2016 conference. There are no limits in regard to historical period, topic, or theme, and we welcome panel proposals, especially those that include panelists from multiple institutions. Acceptances will ultimately depend on the availability of compatible presentations to form coherent panels.


If your research does not focus on poetry and poetics criticism but fits within the broad range of areas designated for the upcoming conference on American and Popular culture, we still encourage you to consult the conference website <http://southwestpca.org/> for a list of Area Chairs and their calls for papers.


Poet-critics who may wish to participate in the readings panels should contact either Jerry Bradley (Area Chair of Creative Writing [Poetry, Fiction]) or Hugh Tribbey (Area Chair of Experimental Writing and Aesthetics), via the website.


Please forward this call to your colleagues and graduate students.


Interested graduate students should consider applying for one of the available monetary awards; more information is available at http://southwestpca.org/conference/graduate-student-awards/


We will review proposals on a rolling basis until the 15 November deadline. Interested parties should apply at the conference database:



Additionally, please visit http://journaldialogue.org for information about the organization's new, peer-reviewed journal, Dialogue: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Popular Culture and Pedagogy.
