Mapping Modernist PoemsThis panel seeks to explore the relevance of maps, charts, graphs, and scores as elements of modernist poetry or as ways of conceptualizing the poetic process. How have poets incorporated such graphic practices into their compositions and to what ends? Alternatively, how have authors described their poetic processes in terms of graphic designs, and what visual sources or models have informed such poetries? Which modernist practices of this kind have been carried forward into postmodern poetries? Papers might fruitfully explore the formal implications of such questions and/or their relevance to twentieth century visual and sound culture, systems of data-gathering, geographies, information processing and display.
