Nick Selby's research centres on poetry and poetics that emerge out of the modernist tradition. Most especially he is interested in the ‘Americanness' of American poetry (though he has also written about transatlantic poetics and British experimental poetry) and has recently been thinking, and writing, about eco-poetry. He has published books on Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot and Walt Whitman and numerous other essays on a range of American poets. His work examines poetic difficulty and the ways in which close-reading entails ethical responsibility. It explores how a poem is an environment in which poetic thinking takes place and the relationship this bears to ecological thinking. His next project will turn to issues of intimacy, affect, and touch in Robert Creeley's work in order to think through close-reading and its social and political potency.

Jos Smith is a poet and lecturer in contemporary literature at UEA with an interest in the relationship between literature and the environmental movement. He has written on ecopoetics, poetry and landscape, poetry and cultural geography, the literature of the coast, the New Nature Writing and he is currently working on a cultural history of the arts and environmental charity Common Ground. His first collection of poems, Subterranea, was published by Arc Publications in 2015 and explores our volatile relationship with landscape, place and wildlife. More recently, his pamphlet Sun was published by Guillemot Press and is, as you might imagine, about the restless energies of the sun.
