SANTA CRUZ CONFERENCE: BLAKE & CRITICISM
The conference will take place from Thursday evening, 19 May, through Saturday, 21 May. With the exception of an opening address by Hazard Adams, there will be no formal paper presentations. Instead, papers will be turned in by late March so that they may be circulated among the participants well before the conference. At the conference itself, each author will offer a précis of the paper; this will be followed by the solicited response of another participant, and then general discussion. “Audience” and “participants” will be one and the same.
Those contributing papers and/or responses include Hazard Adams, Donald Ault, Vince De Luca, Morris Eaves, Gavin Edwards, Michael Fischer, Geoffrey Hartman, Nelson Hilton, Paul Mann, Jerome McGann, W. J. T. Mitchell, Alicia Ostriker, Morton Paley, David Simpson, Daniel Stempel, Thomas Vogler, and Hayden White.
Accommodations[e] have been arranged at the Holiday Inn in Santa Cruz, which is offering a special rate of $35 single/$40 double for reservations made up to one month before the conference; please specify that you will be attending the conference.
Please address any questions to “Blake & Criticism,” Literature Board, UCSC, Santa Cruz, CA 95064 (tel. 408-429-4591).
