Dear all (as ever, sorry for cross-postings [and for general inbox cloggings from me]);
See below for a memory jog relating to next summer's Ezra Pound International Conference - it's going to be in London and I'd very much like to get as many non-regulars along as possible, from Britain and from everywhere. Papers about anything to do with Pound are welcome; though anything to do with Pound and London/Britain then or now would be most gratefully received.
Make sure you get your proposals in to John Gery by the 15th of October!
Please remember that
