Submissions are sought for a collection of essays on T. S. Eliotís international reception. The collection will explore how Eliotís writings and persona have entered the literary and cultural life of countries other than England and the United States where his reception has already been well documented. Submissions might address the different ways in which readers, critics, and writers from other cultural contexts have responded to Eliotís words, ideas, and politics. Of particular interest is the encounter, within post-colonial, even colonial spaces, between indigenous voices and Eliot as a canonical English writer. Other submissions might focus on the matter of modernist poetics in respective world traditions as they are manifested in, or translated through, responses to T. S. Eliot. In addition to scholarly pieces, we also welcome more personal essays reflecting upon an individualís engagement with the words and ideas of Eliot and the particular social setting in which it took place.
Please send abstracts of about 2 pages by November 30, 2004 to both Shyamal Bagchee at firstname.lastname@example.org and Elisabeth Dšumer at email@example.com.
