Lifting Belly

Joyelle just came back from Lifting Belly Conference where she presented a paper on Hannah Weiner (which is forthcoming in Boundary 2).

I looked through the conference schedule and I found a lot of talk about innovation and challenging poetry but I couldn't find a single paper on a non-English-language poet. Lots of stuff about Lyn Hejinian and Jorie Graham, but nothing about anybody from elsewhere.

If you want to know what's challenging to academic critics, that's one place to look.

(Though I do know that Cathy Park Hong talked about Danish poet Inger Christensen.)

However, I would really really love to read this paper. I must try to contact the presenter:

‘prenatal

and
‘kits

A
‘disguss[ion]’
of
Misrecognized

Also, Lara informed me that she talked about Aase Berg.

My point still holds.
