Dear Poundians,

We have begun preparations for the two panels at the American  
Literature Association Conference in Washington DC, which will take  
place on May 22-25, 2014. Please find the society calls for papers  

The first panel, entitled ?Ezra Pound and Other World Cultures,? is  
being organized by Robert Kibler. Here is Professor Kibler?s call for  

?All ages are contemporaneous? especially in literature, Ezra Pound  
wrote in 1910. To be sure, his life work drew a vast array of other  
peoples, their worlds, their ideas, into his own contemporaneous  
literary universe. We know the people, the places, and the ideas drawn  
together. But it works the other way too, for Pound enters into  
interpretive dialogues with other worlds, understood not just as parts  
of his own vision, but also as entities discrete unto themselves.
In this call for papers we seek scholars, artists, and even performers  
to undertake an examination, broadly considered, of other-world  
cultures engaged by Pound. What various ends do his appropriations of  
them serve, and how is his own literary universe co-opted, disrupted,  
or transformed by the exchange? We are in search of new meaning here  
and fresh paths. Please send your 350 word abstracts as Word documents  
both to Robert Kibler, panel organizer, at  
[log in to unmask], and to Demetres Tryphonopoulos,  
Secretary, Ezra Pound Society, at [log in to unmask], no later than  
January 10, 2014.

The second panel, organized by Demetres Tryphonopoulos, will be on any  
aspect of Pound?s relationship with Archibald MacLeish, including  
their correspondence, Pound?s reception of MacLeish?s poetry, and  
MacLeish?s role in ending Pound?s incarceration at St. Elizabeths.  
Please send your 350 word abstracts as Word documents to Demetres  
Tryphonopoulos, Secretary, Ezra Pound Society, at [log in to unmask] no  
later than January 10, 2014.
