Dear all,

We are pleased to be able to announce the titles of the two plenary
speeches for our one-day international symposium to mark the centenary of
the avant-garde magazine, *Blast*, on 2 July 2014 at Trinity College
Dublin.  Our plenary speakers are:

Andrzej Gasiorek (University of Birmingham): ‘“With Expletive of
Whirlwind”: *BLAST *then and now’

Sarah Victoria Turner (Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, Yale
University): ‘The Force of Technique: Vorticism, Violence and Avant-Garde
Sculpture in Britain c. 1914'

The programme has now been prepared and will feature, alongside our
plenaries, a full schedule of panel papers on Vorticism, on individual
contributors to *BLAST*, and on the connections betwen *BLAST *and Ireland;
a panel on ‘*BLAST* in the Classroom,’featuring students of a sophister
module on *BLAST* delivered last year; an exhibition of both issues of
*BLAST*, alongside other examples of artistic and print culture, in
Trinity's Long Room library; and a performance of *Enemy of the Stars*,
directed by Nicholas Johnson.  This interdisciplinary event, which is open
to all, will showcase the continuing influence and relevance of *BLAST*in
the twenty-first century.

Registration for the symposium is now open.  Cost for attedance will be
€10/€5 (students/uinwaged) to be paid on the day, but please do register in
advance.  Further details, including a full list of speakers and a
registration form, are available on the conference blog:

Thanks - apologies for any cross-posting - and we look forward to seeing
you there.

Best wishes,

Nathan, Philip and Katy,
