Dear Poundians, Semester has started for a lot of us and it is that time of the year to decide about participation in conferences. The deadline for the conference in Louisville is on the 15th of September, a few days from now. In big conferences it is always better to make sure a Pound presentation does not get lost in the crowd and pops up in panels where the audience might be interested in another author. Here our society can do real service and focus attention and audience response on us and our work. Please let me know if you'd like to come and present your work at this conference. With all my best, Roxana -- The University of Edinburgh is a charitable body, registered in Scotland, with registration number SC005336.
