George Herbert's "Easter Wings" (1633)

If you are a scholar of concrete poetry, here’s a call to action:
Never Abolish Chance: The Concrete Poetry Conference at SBU

St. Bonaventure University is pleased to announce a new quadrennial conference on Concrete Poetry. The inaugural event will take place Friday, March 31 – Saturday, April 1, 2017, on the university campus in scenic Western New York. The conference invites proposals on any topic related to concrete or visual poetry understood broadly. We especially encourage proposals that address the international or hemispheric traditions, as well as those that offer alternative roadmaps outside the received genealogies. Participants will be welcomed at all levels of faculty and graduate research.

Deadline for submissions: January 10, 2017
Complete details here.
