Reminder: Call for Papers for Sylvia Plath Symposium 2012: The October Poems

As things in the blog-world get lost and forgotten easily, it seems as good a time as any to re-post information on the Sylvia Plath Symposium 2012 as a way to encourage you all to consider submitting for topics. I have! Have you? Will you?

The Department of English at Indiana University is accepting papers for the "Sylvia Plath Symposium 2012: The October Poems" to be held Thursday to Sunday, October 24-27 at the Bloomington campus.

This event commemorates the 50-year anniversary of Ariel with a focus on poems Plath wrote in October 1962. While all topics related to Plath's work may be submitted, featured scholars and artists will highlight Plath's most famous works. The opening day seminar will address the phenomenon of inspiration and the creative imagination. Literary panels will take place on Friday and Saturday. A website posted in May will provide more details.

Deadline for abstract submissions is July 1, but earlier is recommended, particularly for international scholars. Students are encouraged to submit.

Please submit 250-300 word abstracts for 15-20 minute papers to plath70 (at) indiana.edu. Queries may be sent to kdconnor (at) indiana.edu.
