Deadline: 1 July 2012
The Department of English at Indiana University Bloomington is accepting papers for the Sylvia Plath Symposium 2012: The October Poems. This interdisciplinary event to be held on the Bloomington campus runs from Thursday through Sunday, October 25-28.
While topics on any aspect of Plath’s work are welcome, featured speakers and artists will respond to what Plath called “the best poems of my life” – including “Daddy,” “Lady Lazarus,” “Ariel,” “Fever 103°” and the Bee Sequence poems.
Day one of the Symposium focuses on the phenomenon of inspiration and the creative imagination, and literary panels will take place on Friday and Saturday. Papers should be 15-20 minutes. Please submit an abstract of 250-300 words to plath70 (at) indiana.edu. Deadline is July 1, but earlier submissions are encouraged, especially for international scholars.
