Milton’s Place in the Profession: Global Perspectives (RSA 2024) *deadline extended*
The Milton Society of America seeks to assemble a roundtable at the RSA 2024 on the shifting role of teaching and writing about the work of John Milton in the academic profession today, in different places across the world. Although some of our conversations will revolve around the serious institutional and vocational challenges that many Miltonists confront, we also hope to hear about creative responses to those challenges as well as contexts in which Milton scholarship is beginning to take hold or developing in new ways. Participants will be asked to open with brief (approximately seven-minute) prepared remarks in order to allow ample time for conversation and discussion. For consideration, please submit an abbreviated CV and a brief (200-word) abstract of your opening remarks to Eric Song at MiltonSocietySec@gmail.com, no later than July 12, 2023 (new extended deadline).
