Call for Papers: Conference on UK Spoken-Word Poetries Since 1965

Invitation to submit a proposal for a paper, presentation, panel or performance that examines intersections of literary and performance traditions in contemporary UK spoken-word poetries. The conference focuses on the post-war openess of British poetry and although multilingualism, for example, is not explicitly mentioned in the conference outline, it would (should?) find a place in this blurring of borders.

Please send 250-word abstracts + 80-word bio to allbordersblur2023@univie.ac.at by 8 May 2023.
