Papers are sought for a panel on the cross-influence of Morris and his associates on North American literature and culture and the reverse. What did the Morris circle find congenial in American/Canadian/South American/indigenous literature and culture, and in turn, in what ways were Morris and his circle influential in the literary, artistic, business, and political circles of the Americas? What were some instances of transatlantic collaboration? Please send an abstract and short bio or 1 page c. v. to Jude Nixon at and by 15 March 2022.
