Beat Studies is a vibrant field of academic and creative inquiry, growing scholarship recognizes this fact, but pressing questions remain. While the .. Read more Beat Generation seems predominantly an American phenomenon, might we speak of the emergence of a wider cross-cultural Beat-bohemian poetics? What might more serious and sustained transatlantic and transnational discussions tell us about the present state of Beat Studies, and potential ways forward? Beat Studies is often overlooked in relation to other current fields of cultural analysis, in that case where do, or should, the Beats ‘fit’? The Beats were largely dismissive of academia, so should Beat Studies even exist as an established academic field, or should it exist outside the academy? Therefore, to mark ten years of successful conferences, discussion, and creative and academic research, the EBSN welcomes papers on the present and future of Beat Studies. We welcome not only individual papers and full seminar/panel proposals but also alternative suggestions to the standard conference panel format that take into account the possibilities of the online format, including but not limited to panels, seminars, workshops, informal talks, discussion groups and/or other semi- or fully creative individual or group contributions.We strongly encourage creative submissions of all kinds that relate to the larger Beat phenomenon, and are open to discussions from prospective performers regarding what is possible online.
