The 2014 American Literature Association Annual Conference(ALA) will be held in Washington, D.C., May 22-25, 2014.
The Emily Dickinson International Society will sponsor two sessions at the ALA:
1) Transatlantic Dickinson
We welcome papers that consider Dickinson as a writer whose life and work question the convention of reading nineteenth-century US literature in isolation from its British counterpart, and demonstrate the importance of taking a comparative approach. For example, panellists might examine the influence of British literature, culture and history on Dickinson, or the reception of Dickinson's work in Britain.
