In the hope that it's fixable, I just wanted to point out a typo--on the Society website and on FB--in the CFP for Louisville. The dates are Feb. 26-28, 2015, not, of course, Feb. 28-28.

Subject: a new society bulletin
Conference season with calls for papers and deadlines for abstracts is again upon us. For now, please check out the society website for the latest announcements.
For those of you who'd like to take part in a conference through a society panel, the conferences at Louisville and Brunnenburg have immediate relevance, deadlines are mid-September and mid-October. For these two conferences I would like to propose to you the topic of Pound and the other arts. If you have relevant work in the field and wish to present, send me your abstract as soon as possible.
If you want to make contact or inquiries even informally, please write to me.
Make It New I 2
The new issue of the society magazine is now online and waiting for its readers. This new issue is longer than the first. We've had more contributors, more illustrations, more pizzazz.
May I draw your attention to the three reviews we have on Matthew Feldman's book of Pound's propaganda. This is an experiment that we're making for the first time and I hope it will be useful. It will certainly give a more nuanced opinion on Pound's hybris and our views on it.
The Music Column showcases what is arguably the best piece of music Pound wrote, his violin melody on Dante's "Al poco giorno". I defy anyone who says otherwise!
We have also launched a new series in the magazine - The World in Pound's work - we start it by Prof. Zhaoming Qian's journey to the Na-Khi region. I am sure Prof. Qian is not the only one who explores the world following the cantos. If you have interesting material from your travels, please tell us about it.
The method of reading the magazine of the website has now changed, because of the issue length. I hope it is straightforward and clear but should you run into difficulties, drop me a line.
As previously, the table of contents is open access, but in order to actually read the magazine, you have to log in. When you have done so, hover over the link to the issue to open the submenu with the links to the articles.
For those of you who are interested in video work, you might be glad to know that I have created a Youtube channel for the society.
Ideally, we should have there the best video material on Pound. If anyone would like to take care of the selection and quality, let me know.
Happy reading and stay in touch,
