This website serves as a virtual meeting point for New York School aficionados. Here you will find information regarding upcoming symposiums (such as the inaugural event, listed below), recent publications in New York School studies, the creation of the New York School Studies Association (stay tuned!), and related projects and events.
The New Work on the New York School research collective was unofficially inaugurated on July 6th, 2018, with its first one-day symposium cultivating ideas and discussion among scholars and poets associated with the New York School(s), punctuated by an evening reading.
As we continue to encourage scholarly, critical, artistic, and readerly responses to New York School poetry, we are pleased to announce that a second symposium will be held in Paris in July 2020 (see “Paris 2020” for more). You can download the Call for Papers here.
When: July 6th, 2018
This event was generously sponsored by the University of Birmingham’s American and Canadian Studies Centre, the Birmingham International Engagement and Impactful Research Funds, the Centre for Poetry and Poetics at the University of Durham, the British Association for American Studies (BAAS) and the US Embassy in London.
We are delighted to announce a follow-up event, which will take place at Université Paris Est-Marne la Vallée, in July 2020:
Wednesday 1 July 2020: New Work on the New York School symposium
Thursday 2 July and Friday 3 July 2020: Poets & Critics symposium with Alice Notley.
