William Morris Society in the United States
CFP: Proposals for two sessions at the Modern Language Association Convention, 27-30 December 2008, San Francisco, CA
1. “William Morris: Friends, Colleagues, and Contemporaries"
Papers (15 minutes reading time) are sought on all aspects of the Morris circle--his colleagues and co-workers, his family, his artistic and political associates and friends and those who influenced or were influenced by his work. Although comparative approaches or those on little-known members of the Morris circle would be especially interesting, other topics are also welcome.
2. "Pre-Raphaelite and Aesthetic Prose"
Papers (15 minutes reading time) are invited on any aspect of prose by Pre-Raphaelite and aesthetic movement writers: art and literary criticism, memoirs, letters, and short prose fictions.
Please send one-page abstracts by 20 March 2008 to Prof. Florence Boos, Dept. of English, University of Iowa via email:
