CONFERENCE: BLAKE & CRITICISM
Nelson Hilton reports that the proposal for the “Conference on Blake and Criticism” has been filed with the National Endowment for the Humanities, and its decision is expected by 1 March. Should funding be approved, the conference is scheduled for 12-14 November 1981, at the University of California, Santa Cruz. The conference would offer sessions on (1) Blake and the Critical Tradition, (2) Blake and New Literary History, (3) Blake, Feminism, Psychoanalysis. (4) Blake, Textuality, and Deconstruction, and (5) Blake, his Audience, and the Future of the Humanities. Along with the outstanding selection of scholars who have already agreed to participate, the conference would seek additional papers for each session, but particularly for (3) and (5). Some financial assistance should be available to national and/or foreign participants who would otherwise be unable to attend. Anyone interested is invited to contact him (Dept. of English, UGA, Athens, Ga. 30602).
