2017 Dickinson Critical Institute in Amherst

Graduate students and early career scholars are invited to apply to the Dickinson Critical Institute at the Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS) Annual Meeting in Amherst, MA on Friday, August 11, 2017. The Institute provides an opportunity for participants to workshop critical essays and conference papers with established Dickinson scholars in small seminars. Participants are encouraged to stay for the entire annual meeting, from August 11-12, which will feature keynote presentations by former participants in the Institute. The Annual Meeting also provides the opportunity to meet and talk with other participants who share common interests, to conduct research at area libraries with strong holdings related to Dickinson, to visit the Dickinson Museum, and perhaps to walk the Emily Dickinson Trail or other hikes in the area.

If you are interested in applying to the Institute, please submit a short cv and a 500-word description of your project to Eliza Richards (ecr@email.unc.edu) and Faith Barrett (barrettf@duq.edu) by January 31, 2017. Applicants will be notified by email in February; selected participants will be asked to circulate 8-10 page papers to their workshop group by June 30th.

The EDIS can offer travel funds to a limited number of participants. If you would like to apply for travel funds, please include a document with your application that provides the following information:
