193. Poetry and the Return of “Lived Experience”

8:30 AM–9:45 AM Jan 10, 2020 (US - Pacific)

WSCC - 613

Session Information

Description: Panelists examine the resurgence of the term lived experience in recent scholarship and seek a new theoretical articulation of its place in poetry studies. Bringing to bear research in French, Latin American, British, German, and American poetry, from the nineteenth century to the present, discussants explore what the term affords as an alternative to such frameworks as the “neurological turn” and the “affective turn” in humanities scholarship.
