CFP: TSE @ Louisville (Feb. 2016)

The T. S. Eliot Society will again sponsor a session at the annual Louisville Conference on Literature and Culture Since 1900, to be held at the University of Louisville, February 18-20, 2016. Abstracts for 20-minute papers on any subject related to Eliot are invited, but those drawing on volume one of The Complete Prose of T. S. Eliot: The Critical Edition are particularly welcome. This first volume, Apprentice Years, 1905-1918, includes Eliot’s juvenilia, his graduate essays in philosophy and the social sciences, and his early journalism. There will be a talk on Eliot’s philosophical papers by Jewel Spears Brooker, co-editor of the volume, at this year’s session. The online edition of Complete Prose is available in many libraries and by individual subscription on the Project MUSE website at Johns Hopkins  (http://muse.jhu.edu/about/reference/eliot/). For further information on the 2016 conference, please visit the website: www.thelouisvilleconference.com.

Those interested should send a 300-word abstract to Anita Patterson (apatters@bu.edu) no later than September 10, 2015. Please include your academic affiliation (if applicable) and a brief biographical note with your abstract.
