Information and Invitation "Poetics of Politics"

In less than one week scholars of American studies will meet in Leipzig to discuss political and poetic notions in texts from literature, film, non-fiction, television, and new media. Analyzing the crossroads of contemporary American literary and political cultures, the conference wants to shed light on the textual dynamics by which texts in and across the realms of literature, culture, and politics negotiate political issues and assert their own social relevance.

Material for Upcoming Conference

With the conference "Poetics of Politics: Textuality and Social Relevance in Contemporary American Literature and Culture" approaching, we have uploaded some material for teachers who might be interested in attending.
