KSAA Mentoring Project

Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The Keats-Shelley Association of America announces the second year of its three-year Mentoring Project. This project is designed to aid younger members of the profession in the crucial early stages of their careers by increasing the exchange of scholarly expertise and practical professional information between junior and senior scholars. If a senior scholar (who has earned tenure) would like to be a mentor (for one protégé), he or she should notify the Mentoring Committee, outlining briefly for us his or her range of scholarly or professional areas of expertise (e.g., Charlotte Smith, grant writing). Junior scholars who have earned the Ph.D. but not yet received tenure can request a mentor by describing their own scholarly interests and professional concerns. All offers and requests should be submitted by April 2. The Mentoring Committee of the KSAA will match prospective mentors with prospective protégés in late April. Mentors and protégés commit to one year of conversation (vocal, written, and/or electronic).

A full description of the Project, prepared for its inaugural year, can be found on the Keats-Shelley Association Website:

full description, contact Gina Luria Walker, walkerg@newschool.edu.

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.
