This symposium will be held at St Peter’s College, Oxford, on 15
June, 2013, with a view to opening up and exploring connections
between poetry and the dictionary. Proposals for papers on any
aspect of this relation are now invited – discussions of
ambiguity, dialect, etymology, and translation, for instance, or
considerations of specific poems, poets, and dictionaries. The
focus will be on the twentieth century, but proposals for papers
treating other periods will also be welcome. Proposals of 300
words, for papers of 20 minutes, should be sent to the
organisers, at proposals@poetryandthedictionary.com, by the
end of April. Further information will be made available on the
symposium’s website, www.poetryandthedictionary.com.
