I and other gfolks will be involved in a couple of interesting panels at MLA ("Digital Poetics" and "Hypertext and Poetry" - both under the rubric of POETRY AND COMPUTERS) and I invite you to check out details on an interesting page John Lavagnino has set up. Congratulations to John for bringing some alternatives to MLA! Set your Netscape browser to , and have a look.

yeah let's start making mla plans like we did last year. i'm gonna be talking about hannah weiner, that paper you all helped me with, on a panel on history, ecstasy and lyric. i notice that some of my favorite white boys have cornered the market on poetry of the african diaspora organized by the poetry division. for those of you who don't know michael eldridge (the only person on that panel not known to the poetix list), he was a student here at u mn and now works at humboldt state. a smart guy and pretty hip, a postcolonialist into caribbean stuff. also, walter lew and kimiko hahn are reading. juliana chang is talking aobut jessica hagedorn and there's a whole panel on slams. speakig of which, at the upcoming rethinking marxism conf at amherst i'll be on a panel called revolution of the word, with amitava kumar and some others i don't know talking about slams, populist poetics etc. ben friedlander is talking about levinas on the jewish cultural studies panel. i notice lisa s, charles b and barrett w are confabulating on laura (ingalls) riding at the little hotel in the big national capital. where shd we plan to gather this time? since i may be on a search committee, i may be spending all my non-talk time in a small room fulminating at the small handful of colleagues whom i adore and making life hell for some brilliant dissertation-finisher, but i can dash out for a coffee with a poetixer or 2.

Loss and others,

I notice that the Digital Poetics panel, of which we're both a part, is scheduled at the same time as Lisa's L(R)J session. So much for the amount of MLA bandwith allotted to "alternatives."

(Actually, I know that the timing wasn't deliberate, but it's still frustrating since I suspect the two panels will have audiences in common.)

Thanks for the updates, Maria and Loss. I will check out yr web page.

Speaking of MLA, I will be chairing/moderating a panel I put together on the later work of the Irish poet Thomas Kinsella. I think the papers will be pretty good, and Kinsella doesn't get much attention, tho he's the older Irish poet who has learned the most from modernism. Inexplicably, the panel is in a huge room. So come on down; there's room for everybody.

There will be a panel on public poetries--slams, cafe poetry, inaugaral poetry--on Sunday at noon. It's chaired by Susan Gilmore from Ithaca College and should be a lot of fun.

I'll be chairing the American Dialect Society session, if anyone intends to hit the mla on the first day.

I'm glad to hear about all the MLA panels on electronic & public poetry. There will be another panel, Monday at noon, on History, Ecstasy, and Lyric Subjectivity---how ecstasy interferes w/ lyric ego, to rephrase Olson-- with papers on Hannah Weiner (Maria Damon's), Charles Olson, H.D., Bishop.
