Panel Organizer with Dan Popescu, Oradea:
This panel invites papers dealing with the role, function, and implementation of creative writing in the academia. Papers may take issue with the shifting figurations of the academic/poet/writer's role in relation to the university. Questions such as the following can be posed: must the poet be a practitioner of a ‘poetry of knowledge' in order for him to gain teaching credentials and legitimation? How is erudition perceived in relation to other cognitive and emotional factors, such as interpretation, creativity, imagination, inspiration? Comparative approaches across disciplines and transatlantic differences (the American tradition vs. the European) are welcome.
