The 2019 Conference on John Milton—to be held October 17-19, 2019 in Birmingham, AL--welcomes papers and roundtables on any aspect of Milton Studies, from close readings of particular works to broader investigations of themes, trends, and contexts. In addition, we welcome papers with a specific focus on Milton and early modern women writers and especially Lucy Hutchinson.

We are also happy to consider papers that focus only on Hutchinson. Plenary speakers will be David Norbrook and Erin Murphy.
