1978 MLA Seminar
Unfortunately, the Modern Language Association has rejected Anne Mellor’s petition for a Blake seminar this December because there were not enough panelists committed by a certain date in advance. Therefore Mellor requests that prospective participants in the seminar for December 1978 send her an abstract and a copy of their proposed papers by October of this year.
The topic is “Blake’s Self-Portraits,” broadly conceived to include Blake’s imagery in his poetry and art of himself as poet, painter, illustrator, and print-maker; his conceptions of the creative process, the self, masculinity (as opposed to femininity); his use of autobiographical materials; etc. Write to Anne Mellor, English Department, Stanford University, Stanford, California 94305.
