3) Come to one of our editors’ panels!

Thursday, April 9, 2015, 3:00 pm to 4:15 pm, Room 101 J, Level 1
R232. The Rise of the Chapbook. (Rebecca Hazelton,  Jeffrey Levine,  Kit Frick,  Katherine Sullivan,  Matthew Olzmann) Chapbooks, which date back to the 16th century, are enjoying a revival as online publishing and social networks connect far-flung writing communities. Once cheaply produced ephemera, the chapbook today is a product of quality printing methods and editorial care. This panel of independent presses will explore the place of chapbooks in the contemporary literary landscape, discuss the challenges of selecting them, and consider what chapbooks offer that can’t be found elsewhere.

Saturday, April 11, 2015, 1:30 pm to 2:45 pm, Room 200 H&I, Level 2
S210. Echoes of Displacement: Sound in Poetries of Diaspora. (Chris Santiago,  Shane McCrae,  Barbara Jane Reyes,  Abdi Phenomenal Farah,  Yvonne Garrett) This panel will look at various sonic techniques found in diasporic literature. Writers of Irish, Asian, and African diasporas will discuss how sound manifests as utterances, soundscapes, traces of lost languages, wordplay, and music in their own and others’ work, often as a consequence of displacement from a homeland or mother tongue. The panel will suggest ways of producing new works in this vein and, moving forward, will investigate practical approaches to diasporic writing in the classroom.
