Thursday, 14 February, to Saturday, 16 February 2019
The Lod and Carol Cook Conference Center

Individual papers on any aspect of Donne’s life and work are welcome. We also welcome panels of papers and (new to the conference this year) poster presentations addressing specific topics in Donne studies.

FULL PAPERS PREFERRED; SUBSTANTIAL ABSTRACTS CONSIDERED. (1 copy, 8–10 pages maximum, as an email Word attachment; please include your e-mail address, academic affiliation, and mailing addresses in the body of the email submission). We invite presentations with a focus on digitized Donne materials and the use of digital tools and methods in research and teaching Donne.

Our keynote speaker this year will be Ray Siemens, Director of the Electronic Textual Cultures Laboratory and the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria, Canada.

Each year the conference gives two awards, the John R. Roberts Award for Best Essay by a Graduate Student and the Kate Gartner Frost Award for Best Essay by an Early Career Scholar (i.e., within the first seven years after receiving his or her doctorate). Those interested in being considered for either award should say so in the cover message.

ALL SUBMISSIONS MUST BE RECEIVED BY 15 October 2018
