"Marianne Moore and the Archives"

The University at Buffalo

will host a conference on Marianne Moore

May 22-24, 2020

Call for proposals: 

"Marianne Moore and the Archives" will focus on Moore in relation to archival collection practices, broadly understood. 

We encourage proposals drawing on research collections at the Rosenbach or on the Marianne Moore Digital Archive but also proposals on Moore's appearance in other modernist archives, in relation to networks of her friends and peers, to current theories and practices of archiving, or on Moore herself as a librarian, a collector, and a self-archivist. 

Attention to topics traditional archives may occlude is also welcome, as are all fresh and innovative approaches to Moore.

Proposals should be no more than 300 words. Please also include a bio of 50 words or fewer.

Please submit your proposal to Stacy Hubbard at

Proposals are due by October 1, 2019 (please submit only individual presentation proposals - for a 15-20 minute paper or a 7-minute roundtable presentation - not an entire panel or roundtable).

More information about the conference, opportunities for registration and so on will be forthcoming on a conference website, early in the new year.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Conference committee:  Alison Fraser (UB Special collections) and Stacy Hubbard, Cristanne Miller, Nikolaus Wasmoen (UB English Department)
