William Morris Society of Canada 2014 Symposium: Morris & History
University of Toronto, March 22, 2014

The William Morris Society of Canada invites proposals for 20-minute papers to be presented at a 2014 symposium on Morris and History. Considerations of Morris's interest in history and of historical influences and connections implicit within one or more aspects of his work are welcome. Papers may explore these themes in relation to his many artistic and literary endeavours, to development of his political thinking and also to changes in his ideas about history itself.

Please send electronic copies of proposals (300-500 words) and a brief biographical statement to Richard Bishop, Program Committee Chair (rjbishop@rogers.com) by December 15, 2013.
