Dear Friends and Colleagues,
As the two on-site organizers of the newly relocated Conference on John Milton (October 12-14, 2017), we wanted to take a moment here at the end-almost the end?-of your semesters to remind you about some conference information.
The conference will be held at the Doubletree hotel in downtown Birmingham, Alabama, a city named by the New York Times as one of 52 Places to Go in 2017<https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2017/travel/places-to-visit.html?_r=0>. We will be featuring a dramatic reading of Samson Agonistes, plenary lectures by Elizabeth Sauer and John Rumrich, and a closing banquet at the Birmingham Institute for Civil Rights. We are also happy to announce that two representatives from Clemson UP will be at the conference to talk with attendees about their projects and new directions in Milton criticism. Clemson has agreed to take over Duquesne's books-in-process and is also actively seeking to expand its list in early modern studies.
The deadline to submit a paper through the conference website<https://cas.uab.edu/milton/> is June 19. Just think how relieved you will be in the Fall that your paper is already done! We hope you can join us for what promises to be a wonderful conference about our favorite poet. Till then, best wishes to all for a relaxing and productive summer (and email us both if you have any questions).
