Poets on Poets: Sadoff reading Blake; Byron MS found

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

This week, after a short holiday, Romantic Circles' Poets on Poets series publishes Ira Sadoff reading Blake's "London." (Also available via free subscription as a podcast.)

"A librarian at University College London has discovered a previously unknown manuscript version of a poem by Lord Byron during a routine cataloguing session. The 12-line poem was inscribed in the front of a copy of an 1810 edition of The Pleasures of Memory by Samuel Rogers, which had been given to the poet by the author."

MLA poster sessions

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

At this year's MLA convention in Washington DC, the Committee on Information Technology is sponsoring a session on tools for electronic scholarship to be held on Thursday, December 29th from 12:00-1:15 pm in Delaware Suite A at the Marriott. Co-organized by Michael Groden and Kenneth Price, the panel is entitled "New Technologies of Literary Scholarly Investigation." It will be structured as an electronic poster session, with five or six presenters stationed at computers around the room demonstrating their projects and speaking informally to whoever stops by. As someone who has been affiliated with the William Blake Archive (http://www.blakearchive.org) since 1996, I will be discussing how the WBA has been and is being used by researchers and teachers. If you have incorporated the WBA in your own scholarship or teaching, I would very much like to hear from you. I'm interested in compiling a bibliography of scholarship that cites the WBA, locating syllabi that include it, and collecting examples of assignments that ask students to make use of it in some way. Please email me citations, urls, handouts, attachments, or project descriptions offlist at karimkraus at gmail.com.

CFP: "Wild Irish Girls"

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

'Wild Irish Girls': A bicentenary conference to mark the publication of Sydney Owenson’s (Lady Morgan) The Wild Irish Girl and Maria Edgeworth’s Leonora

Keynote speakers: James Chandler (University of Chicago) and Claire Connolly (Cardiff University)

To commemorate the publication of these texts in 1806, proposals are invited for papers for a conference to be held on the 20th and 21st of July 2006. The event will be take place at Chawton House Library, the centre for the study of early women’s writing, which holds first editions of both novels, as well as many other editions of works by Edgeworth and Owenson. It is jointly organised by Chawton House Library and the English Department at the University of Southampton.

In light of increasing interest in both these writers’ works, and in the rise of the national novel more generally, this timely conference seeks to unite scholars working on any aspect of Edgeworth or Owenson’s writing. Paper and panel proposals (for presentations of no more than 20 minutes) are therefore invited and should be sent for the attention of Emma Clery, Gillian Dow and Sandy White at the following email address – sw17@soton.ac.uk or by post to Sandy White: English Discipline, School of Humanities, University of Southampton, Highfield, Southampton, SO17 1BJ, UK.

Please note deadline for abstracts: 13th of February 2006
