2015 Annual Meeting - Amherst, Massachusetts

SAVE THE DATE!!! The Emily Dickinson International Society 2015 Annual Meeting will be in Amherst Aug. 7-9. EDIS, in collaboration with the Emily Dickinson Museum, will offer programs around the theme of "Dickinson in Her Elements." We'll feature Workshops focusing on some poems about the elements, a Critical Institute where participants can workshop essays in progress, and exciting talks. The Institute and the Meeting will focus on Dickinson's relationship to the elements: air, earth, fire, and water. We'll enjoy hikes on the Emily Dickinson trail, visits to the Amherst College Wilder Observatory, a program on Dickinson's gardens, thinking about the weather in Dickinson, and more. Be prepared for bird-watching, star-gazing, cloud musing, ruminating botanically, thinking about insects, earthquakes, and other elemental matters. More information forthcoming SOON!!!
