POETRY & MUSIC : AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

University of Liège, Belgium -- April 1-4, 2001.


Guest speakers and readers will include Marjorie Perloff and Steve
McCaffery

Designed to bring a broad range of writers, composers and scholars into
conversation, the conference will feature roundtable discussions, poetry
readings and performances, keynote lectures and workshops. Submissions
must represent innovative thought (either in the form of extending or
challenging current critical positions). Any interdisciplinary critical
approach may be employed provided it deals with practical
interrelationships between XXth century poetry and music.

Please send proposals (max. 500 words) for 20 minute talks by January
15, 2001 to:

Michel Delville, either via email to mdelville@ulg.ac.be or by post to

Selected papers will be published.
