ALA Annual Conference in Boston, May 25-28, 2023
The Elizabeth Bishop Society is calling for paper proposals for the American Literature Association conference on May 25-28, 2023 in Boston at the Westin Copley Place Hotel. The topic will be open.
We are looking for papers on any aspect of Elizabeth Bishop’s work. We are open to papers involving innovations in genre, connections with other writers, interdisciplinary approaches, and discussions of environmental, transnational, historical, geographical, archival, gender, queer, psychological, child development, and animal studies.
If interested, please email a proposed title and abstract of approximately 200 words by January 15, addressed to myself at firstname.lastname@example.org and to Advisory Board members Bethany Hicok at email@example.com and Angus Cleghorn at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Details about the conference, hotel reservations, a tentative conference schedule, and covid policies may be found at the ALA website at: https://americanliteratureassociation.org/ala-conferences/ala-annual-conference/

A new journal entitled Bishop-Lowell Studies with Editor Ian Copestake will feature scholarly articles on Bishop, Lowell, and related 20th-century writing. Please see the website at https://www.psupress.org/Journals/jnls_BLS.html
The last issue of The Elizabeth Bishop Bulletin was Fall 2019. Thanks to everyone in the Elizabeth Bishop Society for reading and contributing to the bulletin, as well as developing Bishop scholarship over the years! I will keep in touch as a member of the Bishop-Lowell Studies editorial board. Cheers,
“One Art: Elizabeth Bishop and Friendship”
