Poets & Critics at Paris Est (External organisation)

Activity: MembershipMembership of research network


POETS & CRITICS at PARIS EST 2011-2013”, is a three-year research project on experimental literary criticism funded by Université Paris Est Marne-la-Vallée. Its aim is to provide a meeting ground for creative and critical discourses and to engage with new modes of writing criticism, in particular "practice-based criticism”. This is a form of critical writing that positions itself as a creative practice.

The project is based on two-day symposia at which English-language writers and academics from Europe and the United States discuss the work of an invited poet and explore with him/her the connections and disjunctions between criticism and literature. There will be three symposia each year. Nine writers will visit Université Paris Est from 2011 to 2013. The project will conclude with an international conference in 2014.
