Emory University's Special Collections & Archives and English Department present: »Fixed Stars Govern a Life«: the 5th International Ted Hughes Conference
October 5-7, 2005
Robert W. Woodruff Library
Keynote address by Craig Raine, Poet and Critic.
This conference will examine the fixed stars of Ted Hughes scholarship — those major issues and themes which, from our current vantage point, have taken more definite shape and which promise to guide future study of Hughes' life and work.
The conference will include invited papers from leading Ted Hughes scholars as well as papers from newer voices in Hughes studies. Sessions will be devoted to Ted Hughes and tradition, Hughes in America, the mythic landscape of Hughes' work, Hughes and translation, and his ecological vision.
Proposals on these and other aspects of Hughes' life and work, should be sent to the conference coordinator, Melissa Maday, at the following address: Special Collections & Archives, Robert W. Woodruff Library, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia 30322 (mmaday<at>emory.edu). Proposals should not exceed two pages and should be received by March 31st 2005.
An exhibition drawn from the Ted Hughes archive and library and from other recently acquired collections will be on view in the Woodruff Library's Special Collections and Archives.
