Historical Poetics Symposium – December, UNSW & WSU

a poem: historical poetics and the problem of exemplarity
Co-hosted by the Writing and Society Research Centre and the Centre for Modernism Studies Australia

13-15 December 2016 | UNSW, Randwick (Dec 13) and Western Sydney University, Bankstown Campus (Dec 14-15)

The central aim of this symposium is to test the notion of historical poetics against the idea of the individual poem. We will examine how the individual poem presents challenges both for a historical understanding of poetic form and for a formalist understanding of poetry’s history.

Keynote speakers:
Justin Clemens (Melbourne)
David Nowell Smith (UEA)
Meredith Martin (Princeton)
