2012 EDJ Special Issue: “Pearls in Eastern Waters: Emily Dickinson in Asia”

EDJ’s special issue on “Pearls in Eastern Waters,” planned for November 2013, welcomes essays dealing with Dickinson and any aspect of Asian thought, literature, culture, philosophy or religion, translation, and reception. For the purposes of this issue, "Asia" will be broadly defined. Because this is a special issue, we will consider short and primarily factual as well as longer, analytical pieces for publication. To be considered for publication, essays must be conversant with current Dickinson scholarship.

Contribute as you can to help our colleagues in Japan

EDIS members may know that the largest constituency of our members outside the United States is in Japan. One week after the earthquake/tsunami catastrophe, in the morning issue of Japan's biggest new-paper, Asahi Shimbun, Emily Dickinson was
quoted in its most popular column: "Unto a broken heart/ No other one may go/ Without the high prerogative/ Itself hath suffered too" (J1704/ Fr1745). We are currently raising funds to send aid to Japan and want to share with you a statement from the Emily Dickinson Society of Japan.
