CFP: “Robert Frost and Animal Studies”
American Literature Association 30th Annual Conference in Boston, MA
May 23-26, 2019 at the Westin Copley Place
Sponsor: Robert Frost Society (session 1)
“We were lost piecemeal to the animals, / Like people thrown out to delay the wolves,” Robert Frost wrote famously in his poem “The White-Tailed Hornet” of the modern trend to investigate animality in humans. Robert Frost Society invites new essays on Robert Frost’s life and work which would engage some of the critical frameworks being developed today in animal studies.
