> Interdisciplinary Conference to commemorate the centenary of the
> launch of the Vorticist movement. . . . All of us working on the

> speaking at the conference.
> As an incentive to members of the Pound Society, we have made it a
> condition of the payment that all members of affiliated societies
> will be eligible for the reduced fee of £60 for both days.
> Just to fill you in briefly, the conference will include plenary
> lectures by Prof Mark Antliff of Duke University, Prof Paul Edwards
> of the University of East Anglia and Prof. Scott W. Klein of Wake
> Forest University; multiple themed panels on
> cultural and artistic significance and legacy of Vorticism
> and BLAST; the first fully staged performance of Enemy of the
> Stars (Wyndham Lewis’s 1914 Vorticist play); and an exhibition of
> contemporary artists whose work has been influenced or
> inspired by Vorticist aesthetics. More information is available on
