Dear all,

Here is an announcement and two calls for papers. On behalf of the Ezra
Pound Society, I would like to invite those attending the ALA conference in
Boston to look out for and attend our two sessions and Business Meeting
(dates and times to be announced by the ALA in March; see
http://www.calstatela.edu/academic/english/ala2/). As well, please consider
responding to our MLA Congress calls for papers (described below).

First, the following program has been submitted on behalf of the Ezra Pound
Society to this year’s ALA conference which is to be held in Boston, May
26-29, 2011.

And second, in two already circulated announcements, the Ezra Pound Society

submission: "Language, Literature, Learning: Ezra Pound as Teacher/Teaching
Ezra Pound."

This panel will explore any aspects of Ezra Pound as Teacher or Teaching
Ezra Pound’s work. In keeping with this year’s presidential theme, papers on
“Language, Literature, Learning” (see President’s invitation at
http://www.mla.org/pdf/berman_letter_2012.pdf) are encouraged.


Please send 500-word abstracts to Demetres P. Tryphonopoulos

Possible ways of approaching this year’s theme may include (but not be
limited to) Pound and the American West; Pound and War; Pound and Technology

Performance; and Pound and the Media.

II: Call for papers. MLA 2012, Seattle. Ezra Pound Society and James Joyce

and aesthetic and political differences may also be addressed.
