The Robinson Jeffers Association 10th Annual Conference
Theme: Jeffers, Natural Science, and the Big Sur Region
Saturday & Sunday, February 14-15, 2004
Carpenter Hall, Sunset Center, Carmel, CA.
Jeffers famously called Carmel his "inevitable place;" his
connection to the Big Sur coast is well known, and much written
about. Perhaps less well known is Jeffers’s "scientific side." Jeffers kept abreast of the science of his day, but the science evident in his work is not as often studied or written about as are issues of place or region in his work. As we return to Carmel after a 4-year absence, the RJA calls for papers for its 2004 conference that explore the connections, or disconnections, between place and the natural sciences in the work of Robinson Jeffers. At the same time, we welcome considerations of the natural or cultural history of the Big Sur coast in Jeffers’s work.
We look for traditional scholarly papers as well as other,
less traditional presentations. We also hold a poetry reading in
conjunction with the conference and invite poets to submit creative
works for that venue.
