While there are papers of immediate interest to modernists, the English
Institute addresses a wide audience and is a rare venue for collective
thinking. We hope that you’ll join us for a day of a half of active
discussion. As always, the English Institute allows a generous amount of
time for questions and comments following each talk. And we hope as
well that you’ll read the conference text and join in the discussion of
