Poetry And Performance

We are looking for papers, interviews, reviews and new writing that relate to issues of poetry and performance. We invite papers that focus on a range of approaches to poetry and performance, including the relationships between live art / performance and poetics and what has been termed in the UK, Performance Writing. We would like our contributors to consider some aspect of performance poetry or poetry in performance in relation to contexts of collaboration, networks and communities, and / or, its crossover into digital writing and new media. We are also particularly interested in the concept of a "poetic economy", which examines the way that gift cultures can be suggestive of possibilities for developing poetic networks. Poetry's oral tradition is finding new relevance within this type of economy and we welcome submissions that address the recent development of poetic practices that focus on the spoken word such as those supported by a range of venues including; Naropa University and the Bowery Poetry Club. We are also interested in poetry's relationship to live-art, music, sound poetry, and performance in new media.
