Sorry to send this to the whole list, but I don't know Mr. Hatlen's
email address.  I have a proposal for a paper called "Sons of Pound:
The Poetics of Charles Olson and Charles Wright" that looks at Pound's
legacy which I have been seeking a venue for.  Would you like to take a
look at this Mr. Hatlen for possible inclusion on the Pound panel?

Subject: 2007 MLA convention

At the 2006 MLA convention in Philadelphia, the group in attendance at
the last Pound Society panel agreed to invite papers for two panels at
the 2007 Modern Language Association Convention, to be held in Chicago,
December 27-30. 

  1.  "Pound and the Chicago Renaissance." Papers for this panel might
explore Pound's relationship to Poetry magazine or to individual figures
in the Chicago Renaissance, such as Carl Sandburg.  

  2. "Pound and the Modernist as Decadent."  Papers for this panel
should explore Pound's place within Decadence as an international

I set a deadline of March 15 for proposals for these two panels, and I
distributed the invitation for proposals both through the MLA Newsletter
and through the Modernist Studies Association website, as well as
through the Pound listserv. 

As of today, March 23, I have received three proposals for the
"Modernist as Decadent" panel.  In addition, at the 2006 meeting Vince
Sherry offered to present a paper as part of this panel.  However, I
have received NO proposals for the "Pound and
the Chicago Renaissance" panel, and the deadline for submitting program
materials to the MLA office is fast approaching. (The deadline is April

Thus I have abandoned the idea of trying to organize a panel on the
topic of Pound and the Chicago Renaissance. Instead I would like to
extend an open invitation: if anyone would like to present a paper at
the Chicago MLA convention on any
Pound-related topic, please let me know ASAP.
