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!!!

The Emily Dickinson International Society invites submissions for their guaranteed session at next year’s MLA Annual Meeting in Austin, Texas:
Title of session: Lyrical Ecologies
Description: This session focuses on Dickinson’s relation to human and non-human eco-systems. We invite 300-word abstracts for presentations engaging Dickinson's textual and material ecologies, including her interrogation of anthropomorphism; her stakes in human-non-human crossings; her creation of “soundtopes”; her imagination of a post-human “world without us”; her investment in the sociality of poetic form, her continued existence in a new digital ecology, etc.
