[Milton-L] CFP: The Conference on John Milton (Oct 12-14, 2017)

Hi, all,

The conference website is live and the paper submission forms now open. In addition to our featured speakers, we'll have a staged reading of Samson Agonistes Friday evening after dinner, and after the conference ends Saturday, we'll offer an excursion to the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute, followed by a post-conference dinner at the Institute. (Those familiar with the Murfreesboro conference will recognize this attempt on our part to replace, though never to replicate, Cortner's Mill.)

Please pass along the word to friends, colleagues and students. My thanks to everyone who worked and who will work to organize this event, including Angela Balla, Lara Dodds, Angelica Duran, Tom Festa, Ryan Netzley, Margie Thickstun, Hugh Wilson, and especially Alison Chapman, our tireless host. And we of course owe a deep debt to the organizers of the original Conference on John Milton: Charley Durham, Kris Pruitt, and Kevin Donovan, who along with John Shawcross and all the original attendees created a sense of hospitality and collegial support which we hope to perpetuate.
