Poetry & Poetics

The Poetry & Poetics strand is located in the Department between Literature & Science and Theell-peter-robinson-at-public-reading History of the Book, as a research cluster in its own right, and contributing to both of its neighbours' areas. Drawn together around my research, editing, translating, and writing, it includes the study of book and publishing history for poetry, Romantic and Victorian poetry and poetic theory, contemporary poetry and cultural theory, creative writing, as well as poetry and translation.

Poetry & Poetics has generic affinities with some of the early modern research based in EMRC, and plans collaborative research activity relating to the history of anthologizing. It also has links with Philosophy, and with Italian, links which it will develop and extend in coming years. The research strand will showcase its interconnected themes and concerns at the first Reading Poetry Festival, organized by the group, from 5-9 June 2013.

Poetry & Poetics is co-funder of the postgraduate and ECR conference, 'Shifting Territories: modern and contemporary poetics of place', to be held at the Institute of English Studies on 22 and 23 May, 2013 (http://www.ies.sas.ac.uk/events/ies-conferences/Shifting-Territories-2013).
