Copenhagan, Denmark: Gertrude Stein Conference

Juliana Spahr, author of the afterword to Tender Buttons: The Corrected Centennial Edition, take part in "A Valentine To Gertrude Stein: The Reception of Gertrude Stein in the Arts and Humanities." Hosted by the University of Copenhagen, Denmark and co-organized with Ghent University and Linköping University, this conference will focus on the interdisciplinary reception of Stein among artists and academics, and create a platform for in-depth and extended Stein discussion. The event celebrates the 100th anniversary of the publication of Stein's seminal poetry collection, Tender Buttons. This book of prose poems is itself an interdisciplinary work of literary still lifes, collage texts obsessed with issues from the visual arts like perspective, visuality, texture, space, materiality and physical objects. Additional participants include: Marjorie Perloff, Heiner Goebbels, Catharine Stimpson, Isabelle Alfandary, and Steven Meyer. For more information, write to:
