The Emily Dickinson International Society invites proposals for work on Dickinson that aligns with the theme of SAMLA 92: Scandal! Literature & Provocation: Breaking Rules, Making Texts. Scholarly or creative work could explore the scandals associated with Dickinson’s social circle, the transgressive nature of Dickinson’s body of work, or how recent representations of Dickinson in popular media rebel against the myth of the “half-cracked poetess.” Graduate students are encouraged to apply. By June 25, 2020, please send a CV, abstract, and AV requirements to Dr. Trisha Kannan at tk1139@gmail.com.

NOTE: The conference organizers are planning for a normal conference at this point, but they are also preparing for a virtual conference if need be.
