Symposium, TU Dortmund University, 1 and 2 June 2018

In his poem “Poets to come,” Walt Whitman addresses “orators, singers and musicians to come” to “arouse – for you must justify me – you must answer.” This will be the first symposium devoted to the wide creative reception of Whitman’s works – from poetry and prose, translation, painting and music, to film, advertising and the World Wide Web, in the U.S. as well as countries and languages around the world. One-page abstracts of paper proposals should be sent electronically, no later than February 1, 2018, to all four symposium organizers: Stephanie M. Blalock:; Wendy Katz:; Kenneth M. Price:; Julia Sattler:
