We “dwell in Possibility”: Digital Humanities and Poetry
South Atlantic Modern Language Association convention
November 8-10th, 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia

The Emily Dickinson International Society invites proposals for SAMLA 2013 that explore the productive union between digital humanities and poetry. While we are, of course, interested in panelists who focus on Dickinson’s work, we are open to theories and examples regarding poetry in general. We hope to produce a less formal setting that will allow for thoughtful and insightful discussion about how cultures, contexts, images, and texts have influenced writers and readers from the nineteenth century to the present. We welcome traditional papers that explore the role of digital humanities in academic and creative work (i.e., the use of digital archives and resources in teaching and scholarship; the use of new media in the study and composition of poetry). We also welcome non-traditional projects and alternative presentation modes, such as pecha kucha or hypertext. Please submit a brief description of your project (200-300 words) to Trisha Kannan ( by June 25, 2013.
