> Great War, the legacy of Imagism for writers of later generations, etc.

> inquiries to this address.)
>    The Aldington Society is joined in affiliated sponsorship of this

> Society. Some funds should be available from these societies to provide
> modest travel grants for graduate students who do not hold a full-time
> teaching position and are currently enrolled in a graduate degree
> progam. If this status applies and you wish to be considered for an
> award, please so indicate at the bottom of your abstract.
>    If you submit your abstract by January 15, or if you indicate
> interest--by emailing the conference co-directors--in attending the
> conference without presenting a paper, you will receive in early
> February an email announcement concerning Conference Lodging and
> Registration.

> at Brunnenburg Castle (home of Mary de Rachewiltz, poet, Pound scholar,
> translator, and daughter of Ezra Pound) in Dorf Tirol, Italy. This early

> conferees to plan, mark calendars, and avoid conflicts. The Call for
> Papers invites proposals related to the conference theme--"Imagism and

> Roberts & Others." (Topics should address the connections of one or more
> writers--not limited to those writers named in this conference

> the Elizabeth Madox Roberts Society. (Limited travel awards for graduate

> (although earlier topic inquiries are welcome). The final deadline for
> all proposals will be January 15, 2010.
> (N.B. Since many prospective attendees will be at the 14th International
> Hemingway Conference in nearby Switzerland, please note that the dates
> of the Hemingway conference--June 25 to July 3--do not present a
> conflict and allow for an unhurried progress from one conference to the
> other).
> We look forward to seeing you in the glorious mountains of northern
> Italy, in one of the most extraordinary conference venues in the
> world--Brunnenburg Castle--in June 2010!
