Elizabeth Bishop Conference to be held in Sheffield, England, in 2015

Bishop scholar Jonathan Ellis has just let us know that there will be an international conference next year in Sheffield, England. The conference is marking the 50th anniversary of the publication of Bishop's award-winning collection Questions of Travel: "Elizabeth Bishop's Questions of Travel: 50 Years Later," 25-27 June 2015.

Check out the conference site and the call for papers at: http://elizabethbishopat50.wordpress.com/

An impressive line-up of keynote speakers is already in place. As the first major conference since the Elizabeth Bishop symposium at the University of King's College in Halifax, N.S., in 2011 (which was about "home"), it will surely draw many veteran and new Bishop scholars.
