Magic Words: Experimental Poetry and Poetics

Presiding Officer: 
Jessica Lewis Luck, "California State University, San Bernardino"

Unlike traditional lyric poetry whose language functions primarily at the level of representation, contemporary innovative poetries often act as presentations, events, or experiences in their own right, aiming to transform readers with their magic words—affectively, cognitively, and even politically. This panel will feature new scholarship on the readerly a/effects of experimental poetics.
