Robert Frost Society will be hosting a panel at the 2016 MLA Convention to be held in Austin, TX January 7-10, 2016.
In accordance with the announced theme of the meeting, "Literature and Its Publics: Past, Present, and Future," we
invite papers that explore the relationship between Frost, the public, and the artistic community of his time. Papers
might address the following, or related questions: Who was and is the audience for his work? Does Frost’s s public
persona coincide with the public’s perception of him? What is the nature of that public? Please submit an abstract and
A/V requirements to Virginia Smith, United States Naval Academy, at firstname.lastname@example.org by March 23, 2015. For more information about

This jointly sponsored
roundtable invites comparative discussions of any aspect of Frost’s and Stevens’ life and writing. Possible topics
include their relationship to 19th-century traditions and romanticism; their status as quintessential American, or regional,
versus global poets; their wide-ranging interests in contemporary science and philosophy; their imaginative geographies or
relationship to nature and to place; their letters, prose, or plays; the surprising parallels in some of their lived experiences;
their writing in verse modes beyond the lyric; their versification and ideas about the nature of poetic sound.
