“Dystopic Dickinson. Or Is It Utopic Dickinson?”

Giving Tuesday

As you undoubtedly are aware, we have a day for giving thanks, and then a couple of days for getting deals, and now we have Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving back. Today, people and institutions around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. During this festive, busy holiday season, we ask that you consider giving to the Emily Dickinson International Society (EDIS). Your gift of any amount will help us continue support the study and appreciation of Emily Dickinson’s poetry and poetry in general. We are especially interested in raising funds for student travel to our conferences and meetings (our 2016 International Conference and Critical Institute will be held in Paris). With your support, we can better serve all of our members and programs. To contribute, please visit https://edis.press.jhu.edu/membership/contribute

Here’s wishing each and all the happiest of holiday seasons, and we thank you for your continued support!

In Possibility,
Martha Nell Smith
President, EDIS

The position of Member-at-Large is for a three-year term, which would begin at the EDIS Conference in Paris in June 2016 and conclude in 2019.
