Transculturalising Postmodern Poetry:
Discourses, Learning Strategies, and (Im-)possibilities
Call for Papers
Despite the controversies surrounding the term and its content, postmodernism
appears to be a very productive creative paradigm in poetry around the world. We
could even call it a mainstream poetics. But along with literary patterns and
stylistic devices, the Anglo-American models have disseminated mindsets,
existential, cultural and even civic and political values. For example, in
Eastern Europe during the eighties, the cultural import has been more than a
simple fashion; it has been functioning as a form of subtle subversion and
resistance to the overpowering Communist ideology. The switch of the dominant
cultural model (passing from the French model to the American one) is also an
effect of the globalization of the English language, of American popular culture
and, of course, postmodernism.
Our first aim is to determine the interplay between intertextuality and
interculturality, to assess the various ways in which a relatively stable core
of literary invariants has been constantly reconfigured on the background of
different and rich national traditions. The examination of similarities and
differences between culture-specific postmodernisms will reveal interesting
mutations of a very influential poetics.
Secondly, we would like to test the applicability of the most appropriate
theoretical frameworks and analytical models on a translinguistic and
transcultural level. A 'hands-on experience' based on meaningful excerpts will
stimulate vivid debates regarding their specific rhetoric.
Thirdly, it will be interesting to study the impact of postmodern poetry on
learning communities (pupils, students) and, on the other hand, to see how the
poets themselves recycle youth discourses, in their attempt of making poetry
Contributions are invited from researchers in postmodernism interested in the
issues specified above. Please submit by email to Professor Emilia Parpala by
30th March 2010.
