Party like it’s 1709

The call for papers for our upcoming symposium “Johnson at 300” has now been posted at the symposium’s web page. Themes for many of the sessions have already been selected, and those interested should submit an abstract (300 words) or completed papers by email to the session chair (indicated in parentheses after each session) by January 15, 2009.

There is space for two or three additional sessions and proposals are now being accepted. Session proposals should include session title and a list of participants (chair and three speakers). Proposals should be sent to Thomas A. Horrocks ( by January 15, 2009.

The symposium will be held August 27-29, 2009, and will coincide with the opening of a comprehensive exhibition of highlights from the Hyde Collection (curated by yours truly).
