POESPUBLIC data base
This project ran from 2012 until 2016 and involved a wide-ranging, international team of specialists in literary and cultural studies from eleven universities across seven different countries. The data base can be accessed here: http://bd-poespublic.org/nc/en/search/.
The principal aim of the database is to provide orientation – bibliographic and otherwise – to scholars who approach the field of contemporary poetry from a perspective not limited to highly-specific linguistic and cultural coordinates and who attempt to analyze the critical and public conditions of the new poetic practices.
The POEPOLIT project will add documents on poetic practices in circulation, as well as methodological and theoretical-critical studies on the relationship between contemporary poetry and politics in the Western context to this database.
