Welcome to the online registration platform for

The Between-ness of Lyric /
L’entre-deux lyrique /
Lyrik im Dazwischen

Second Biennial Worldwide Conference of the INSL

taking place in Lausanne from 4 to 7 June 2019.

The conference will be held at the University of Lausanne at UNIL-Anthropole building from 4 to 7 June.


Après l’Université de Boston en 2017, l’Université de Lausanne accueille en juin 2019 le deuxième congrès mondial d’études poétiques et lyriques. Cet événement est l’occasion de réunir la pointe de la recherche internationale en poésie et de partager les principales questions qui se posent aujourd’hui dans ce domaine. Le thème du congrès est « the between-ness » ou « l’entre-deux ». La poésie vit actuellement une forte mutation entre le livre et l’univers numérique/multimedia. Ce congrès vise à articuler les approches historiques et théoriques, les conceptions linguistiques et mondiales, les possibilités de trouver des formes lyriques dans divers genres ou sur divers supports ainsi que de clarifier l’importance des innovations numériques en cours.


After the inaugural conference at the University of Boston in 2017, the University of Lausanne welcomes the second biennial worldwide conference of the INSL. The conference aims to pursue further the notion and the theory of lyric operating between and across languages. We are also interested in the tensions that arise between historical approaches and transhistorical conceptions, between the analysis of printed books and works of transmediation, between ‘close-reading’ and ‘distant reading’, as well as between regional and national concepts of lyric, on the one hand, and global, transnational and comparative perspectives, on the other.


Scientific Committee

Heather Dubrow (Fordham University, NYC), Ralph Mueller (Universität Freiburg), Antonio Rodriguez (Université de Lausanne), Dominique Rabaté (Paris-Diderot), Hans Kristian Rustad (Universitetet i Oslo), William Waters (Boston University).
