The T. S. Eliot Society has added a second seminar to the program for its annual meeting:

Eliot and the Biological
Led by Julia Daniel, Baylor University

This seminar welcomes any project related to Eliot's presentation of the biological, broadly construed. Topics might include Eliot's environmental vision, the depiction of bodies or animals, or the representation of toxic threats to biologic flourishing.

Participants will pre-circulate short position papers (5 pages) by September 1, for discussion at the meeting of the peer seminar on the first day of the 2017 Eliot Society conference, Friday, September 22. Membership in the peer seminar is limited to twelve on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please enroll by July 15, by sending an email with the title of your proposed paper and a brief bio to julia.eliz.daniel at gmail.com<mailto:julia.eliz.daniel at gmail.com>.

Julia Daniel is an assistant professor of modern American poetry and drama at Baylor University. Her book, Building Natures (forthcoming from UVA in Nov. 2017), is an ecocritical study of city and national parks in modernist poetry. She has published on Eliot's drama and his engagement with popular culture in The Waste Land, as well as on urbanism in modernist poetry and the nature/culture divide in Vachel Lindsay's presentation of traffic noise.
