2015: Dickinson Institute CFP

On Friday, August 7, 2015, the Emily Dickinson International Society will sponsor a critical institute in conjunction with its Annual Meeting. The Institute provides an opportunity for participants to workshop critical essays and conference papers with established Dickinson scholars. The topic for this year¹s meeting is “Dickinson in her Elements." Applicants working on Dickinson¹s writings in relation to the physical sciences (botany, geology, astronomy, etc.), agriculture, natural and built environments, etc. are encouraged to apply, but we welcome submissions on all topics. Scholars at all stages--graduate students, adjunct faculty, independent scholars, and tenure-track/tenured professors--are encouraged to apply. Please submit a short cv and an abstract (300-350 words) to Eliza Richards (ecr@email.unc.edu) and Alexandra Socarides (socaridesa@missouri.edu) by January 31, 2015. Applicants will be notified by email in February; selected participants will be asked to circulate conference-length (8-10 page) papers to their workshop group by June 15th.
