SANTA CRUZ CONFERENCE: BLAKE & CRITICISM
The National Endowment for the Humanities has approved funding for the conference, which the sponsors hope will bring into the open the collision between Blake studies and the concerns, values, and strategies of contemporary critical theory. Ever more perceived as a key document at the origins of post-modern consciousness, Blake’s work arguably anticipates and contests many contemporary and often anti-humanistic critical formulations. The conference will focus on the profound role Blake’s work has to play in any new organization and interpretation of humanistic studies. The conference will be held 21 and 22 May 1982 at the campus of the University of California, Santa Cruz. Detailed information concerning the program will appear in the next issue of Blake and will also be available from The Conference on Blake and Criticism, Literature Board, Kresge College, UCSC, Santa Cruz, CA 95064.
